Targeting the arts
INSIGHT articles about controversies and conflicts over art in 2016
Documenting incidents of censorship will never be enough. From the very beginning, Freemuse has attempted to describe censorship of music and arts in a larger context. In 2015 we introduced INSIGHT – a series of articles providing readers with analytical stories on censorship of the arts and in-depth interviews with censored artists or/and cultural producers.
The 2016 compilation covers five countries and provides insight on threats to artistic freedom in Poland, Turkey and Greece, the increasing polarised debate over freedom of expression in India and the Vietnamese government’s control on popular music.
Freemuse annual statistics on censorship and attacks on artistic freedom of expression in 2016 provides complimentary and detailed information on killings, threats, imprisonments and attacks.
