Artists, writers, curators, critics and scholars are targets of politically motivated threats and persecution in great parts of the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has been worsened by increased government control and curbs on free speech and artistic expression. The need to protect artists – and their art as a form of political protest and dissent – has never been greater.
This #MondayFix we bring you a conversation between artists and co-founder of ARTISTS at RISK [AR] Marita Muukkonen and Ivor Stodolsky with filmmakers and activists Q and Vimlendu Jha.
ARTISTS at RISK (AR) works at the intersection of human rights and the arts. AR is dedicated to mapping the field of persecuted visual art practitioners, facilitating their safe passage from their countries of origin, hosting them at “AR-Residencies” and curating related projects, including the “AR Pavilion”.
