Symposium / Workshop: Censorship in Art? New mechanisms and strategies

Date: Dez 6, 2008, 14:00 Uhr

Duration: Dez 6, 2008

Location: Hospitalhof und Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart

It’s been clear that censorship takes place in all areas of artistic production, dissemination and reception, not only since the Danish caricature controversy and the discussion on the Berlin production of Mozart’s Idomeneo. As varied as the forms of artistic activity are today, so too are the forms of its limitation and self-censorship. The symposium invites visitors to a new understanding of artistic freedom’s value. The event is directed at artists, cultural workers, theologians and the general interested public as well as administrators and decision-makers from the areas of art, culture, religion and the church.

With Michael Germann (professor for church law), Friedrich Wilhelm Graf (professor for systematic theology and ethics), Christoph Tannert (director of the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin), Klaus Staeck (director of the Akademie der Künste, Berlin), Nicolai B. Forstbauer (director of the culture section, Stuttgarter Nachrichten) and Corinne Diserens (curator, former director of the Museion Bozen, Italy).
