College Literature: A Journal of Critical Literary Studies, Summer 2013, v. 40, no. 3
Hanna Musiol's essay reflects on contemporary collective and technologized perception, aesthetics and display, in the context of human rights. She muses on the ways that museum arrangement and display practices, specifically the exhibition value, of human rights photography and film, are central to how these media are accepted, understood, and make human bodies legible.
