Design and development: 

Many artists, activists and lawyers defend social justice with their specific discourses and media. Only through the complementary interplay of different voices can one actively intervene in systems. After all, social and human rights discourses cannot be considered separately.

The basis, or rather the "working materials", are recorded conversations between artists and lawyers. These conversations will not be published as closed, monolithic "podcast episodes" - but will be made "readable" using machine learning-based technology. The visualization will be published on a website and will provide an interface for accessing all audio recordings thus provided. Viewers/listeners will be able to follow non-linearly and purposefully those parts of the conversation they find most interesting and contextualize them, thus finding a personal path through the conversations.

The project is carried out by the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR), a non-profit and independent human rights organization in Berlin that works with victims and partners to confront injustice.
