The State of Artistic Freedom 2018 report launch

15 March 2018

 

Freemuse launched its The State of Artistic Freedom 2018 report on 15 March 2018 online and in Stockholm, Sweden, in partnership with PEN Sweden. 

In the first-of-its-kind report documents and examines 553 cases of artistic freedom violations in 78 countries, exploring the rationales and mechanisms in place that allow for these violations to take place.

In assessesing the global state of artistic freedom, Freemuse warns of the emergence of a new global culture of silencing others, where artistic expression is being shut down in every corner of the globe, including in the traditionally democratic West.
