It’s all about sharing an idea.


The initiators come from completely different backgrounds. It is their individual perspectives and approaches in particular that enabled the idea of this book to become reality.


Andrea Fuchs

has been managing luxury hotels through her company Fuchs Hotelconsult e.U. for almost 30 years. Additionally she is managing partner of proASP, a company specializing in IT solutions for hotels which has funded this non-profit book project.

She has always been passionate about charity work and organises an annual charity fundraiser, which has raised substantial amounts for children’s charities including „die möve“ and Africa Amini Alama.

Andrea sought to create meaningful reading material that could be displayed to international guests in hotels around the world. This is how the idea for the book “IMAGINE HUMAN RIGHTS – Artists celebrate the Universal Declaration” was born. Through art, the book envisages possible worlds where people’s human rights are respected, allowing them to flourish.
