On the limits of free speech in the arts scene



Accessible for wheelchair users | English | | KVS Top | Free entrance, registration required

In response to an unprecedented level of censorship and acts of intimidation against colleagues working in the fields of arts and culture in Europe, Kunstenpunt/Flanders Arts Institute organises a debate reflecting on the political agency of arts institutions. What is their responsibility to foster alternative narratives, political action and safer spaces? And is their political position defined by the board, the management, the team, the funding bodies or other stakeholders? Different cases and recent practices will be shared.

Keynote speaker: Yazan Khalili | Speakers: Maria Dogahe (Kaaitheater, Caddy), Kasia Redzisz (KANAL - Centre Pompidou), Tom Bonte (AB - Ancienne Belgique) and Bill Dietz (Overtoon) | Moderator: Mary Ann De Vlieg
