The Prix Art Humanité

Geneva is the global capital of humanitarian action. What impact does that have on the work of artists who trained here? And more generally, can art help us to better understand humanitarian issues?
Since 2015, the annual Prix Art Humanité has provided answers to those questions. The prize is awarded to artists or designers whose work reﬂ ects the most important principle of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement: humanity.
The artists featured here were all contestants for the prize. Humanity is at the heart of all their work, though in very different ways. They highlight social issues, question the norms that govern our relationship to ourselves and others.
