PUSH/Pull, ISSUE 7: NOW AVAILABLE
Guest Editor and Associated Artist Christina Freeman expands on Ultraviolet Archive, her investigation on the ways that artistic freedom is limited through censorship conducting a series of interviews with experts to further understand limitations to artistic freedom in the United States. In this issue she spoke with three experts, offering three very different perspectives: Srirak Plipat (Executive Director of Freemuse), Svetlana Mintcheva (Director of Programs at the National Coalition Against Censorship), and Dread Scott (an artist whose works have faced content-related censorship).
Issue seven is our first print edition of PUSH/PULL and if you would like a copy, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request!
