Exhibition “Drawing the law in the Anthropocene” in Strasbourg and virtual

Drawing Law in the Anthropocene, a project that is both artistic and legal, has mobilized 93 lawyers and artists working in over 20 different countries. 51 duos made up of an artist and a lawyer were formed around as many legal sources embodying the surprising creativity of law.

Born from these exchanges, the project Drawing the Law in the Anthropocene explores in 51 drawings anthropocene situations that the law, apprehends, regulates, repairs.

Filipino Children Oposa case (1993) – narrated by Anthony Oposa Junior, drawn by Sophie Fernandez.

This case was the first in the world to recognize the rights of future generations and to pronounce a halt to intense deforestation that would have deprived them of the forest resource. This precedent is now protecting the oceans in the Philippines and foreshadowing current climate justice actions.

Antonio Oposa, creative litigator, organizer, activist for environmental legislation in the Philippines and leader of the NCP. Sophie Fernandez, scientific illustrator, graphic designer, Paris, France.
