In order to get a better overview of the topic of freedom of artistic expression, it is necessary to assess and reflect the different perspectives and opinions. For this reason, we will interview different actors from the fields of art and culture, cultural policy and experts within the framework of this campaign.
Furthermore, these interviews with their different perspectives should also serve as hints for potential questions regarding an expert survey or support recommendations for action. The Compendium intends to launch the expert survey in spring 2023 with the aim of recording the status quo of freedom of artistic expression in individual countries. This expert survey will then be continued at regular intervals in order to obtain a monitoring effect.
