Julia Duchrow, Brot für die WeltImran Ayata, activist and founder of Kanak AttackWolfgang Kaleck, General Secretary ECCHR "Images can dehumanise us. They can make it easier to kill people", says Mark Sealy, the director of Autograph ABP, the Association of Black Photographers. As a photographer, curator and cultural historian Sealy has a special interest in the relationship of photography to social change, identity politics and human rights. When actors from the Global North work with or on behalf of actors in the Global South, they inevitably reproduce structures of power asymmetry and cultural violence – they "steal" the story of the ones they mean to represent.
 
At ECCHR Sealy will discuss and debate with representatives of the "thieves" – lawyers, artists, academics and human rights activists – the crucial issues of power asymmetry and instrumentalization in their fields of work.
The goal is to discuss these issues as they arise in different professions, including the law, and to draw lessons and parallels from disciplines that have dealt with such questions for a long time already, such as photography.
