Universal Personhood Shepard Fairey Print Release Details

When I first saw this new print by Shepard Fairey titled Universal Personhood I will be honest I had no idea how the title tied into the image. With a little help from Wikipedia I have a better grasp on the print. Personhood is the status of being a person. Defining personhood is a controversial topic in philosophy and law, and is closely tied to legal and political concepts of citizenship, equality, and liberty. According to law, only a natural person or legal personality has rights, protections, privileges, responsibilities, and legal liability.

Personhood continues to be a topic of international debate, and has been questioned during the abolition of slavery and the fight for women's rights, in debates about abortion, fetal rights and reproductive rights, in animal rights activism, as well as in debates about corporate personhood.

Processes through which personhood is recognized vary cross-culturally, demonstrating that notions of personhood are not universal.

Universal Personhood is 18 x 24 inches with a signed and numbered edition of 450. On sale at a random time Tuesday June 4 at
