In recent years, many European countries have experienced episodes in which the creative freedom of artists, musicians or writers has been restricted, and it has become commonplace for some cultural institutions to censor themselves in order to avoid offending political sensitivities. In response to the need to defend the freedom of artistic expression and creation, the Europan Alliance of Academies, a transnational network of 70 cultural institutions from all over Europe, was created in 2020. Four members of this network will discuss the current state of artistic freedom in Europe.
Moderated by: Valerio Rocco, Director of the Círculo de Bellas Artes – Casa Europa
Participants: Dominika Kasprowicz, Director of Villa Decius, Cracow, Ferenc Czinki, President of the Hungarian Writers‘ Association, Geertjan De Vugt, Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences
