AMBASSADOR JUAN ANTONIO MARCH, PRESIDENT OF FUNDACIÓN ONUART

This is the seventh edition of the “World Concert on Human Rights” that we organize at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva, in the emblematic Chamber of Human Rights and the Alliance of Civilizations, which houses the most prestigious contemporary work of art in the UN, the dome of Miquel Barceló, the Foundation’s first contribution to the organization. With the participation of master Gregory Sokolov, we hope to once again combine the beauty of the art of the dome with the beauty of music, thus contributing to extolling the worth of humanity.

This year, on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the creation of the United Nations, the organization has opened an important reflection to strengthen global cooperation in building the future. Issues as important as respect for Human Rights, climate change, inequality and the fight against violence and in favor of human dignity, occupy a central place. We must undoubtedly progress towards a world of global governance under the principle of one humanity and to achieve this goal it will be important to make substantial progress on the Sustainable Development Goals.

Our Foundation was born in 2007 led by the conviction of the force of art to build a more humane and inclusive world. And in a global world, where international organizations must guarantee the coexistence, stability and progress of all humanity, above the interests and tensions of nations, art must be very present to remind humanity of the greatness What can be.

This was the reason for the contribution made in 2008 with the remodeling of Room XX at the Palais de Nations and the completion of the great work of Miquel Barceló. The value of what was achieved led the UN to baptize the new room as the headquarters of the Human Rights Council and the Alliance of Civilizations. With this effort by the Foundation, contemporary art in all its splendor has entered the ordinary life of the Organization. He chairs the meetings on central issues in the life of the Organization. We are proud to have started a new path that we believe should be continued in depth.

The future is also very present in the activity of the Foundation, currently being prepared what will be the great meeting of June 2021 on the relationship between human intelligence and artificial intelligence, a field in which the new humanism will be outlined in the XXI century. This debate will bring together philosophers, world-class politicians, leaders in the field of artificial intelligence, entrepreneurs in the field of innovation, the media and social leaders to discuss in depth the configuration of a new world architecture. The Foundation, open to all countries and people, undoubtedly wants to be a living instrument to promote ideas and initiatives with an international dimension. Under the prism of the art of thinking and the art of building, we want to help generate dynamic thinking that opens new horizons, leads us to feel proud of our diversity and strengthens the potential for understanding.
