The compendium marks the launch of the 2023 cultural policy research campaign “Silencing Dissent? On Barriers to Freedom of Artistic Expressions” and explores the current challenges and framework conditions for artists’ creativity. In the coming months, the platform will publish several reports written by cultural policy expert Andreas Wiesand and invite the general public to participate in various interactive formats (e.g. webtalks, online surveys, interview screenings).
