“Censoring Culture: Contemporary Threats to Free Expression"

Concerns about censorship in the arts may seem historic, but they haven’t gone away. Today, censorship is just as likely to be the result of market force or bandwidth monopoly as a line edit or the removal of an artwork from an exhibition. New technologies and economic systems have less visible, yet equally insidious implications in their impact upon creative work. In the recently published anthology, Censoring Culture: Contemporary Threats to Free Expression, Atkins, and Svetlana Mintcheva, the head of the National Coalition Against Censorship’s art program, have compiled a range of material that report on the current media climate; in this talk, Atkins will relay the findings. Atkins is the founder of the online journal TalkBack! A Forum for Critical Discourse. An anthology of his writing, Seismic Shift: The Collision of the Art World and the Real World In the Late Twentieth-Century, is forthcoming as is a current group project, Thanks for Sharing! A Resource Book About Collaboration in the Arts & Beyond. http://www.robertatkins.net
