The Northern California Women's Caucus for Art is proud to present "Censoring Women's Art: Why Should We Care." Please join us in a lively discussion about censorship of women's art in the areas of sexuality, religion, war and politics.

Organized by Hanna Regev, curator of "Banned and Recovered" and the upcoming "Keeping an Eye on Surveillance," this panel will engage in a lively discussion about censorship of women's art in the areas of sexuality, religion, war and politics.

The panel will also cover these important questions around censorship:
Are increases of censoring activities just isolated incidents or a new trend, and who is behind them? How does the current political climate affect artists and women in particular? What is the role of the media in censorship? Should artists play an active role in fighting censorship? Are there benefits to putting art under scrutiny? How does it help the artists? Is self-censorship a smart strategy or does it create a chilling effect? What can we learn from past controversies?

Moderator Jan Wurm will be joined by panelists Lisa K. Blatt, JD; Taraneh Hemami; Kara Maria; Silvia Cossich Goodman; Cherie Newell; and Anuradha Vikram.

Space is limited, RSVP by going to http://www.ncwca.org.
