This is political
For what reasons are we censored? Why does performing artists get murdered, jailed, and silenced? What is dangerous to talk about, do, plan, present? – And where? We do “This is political” to try to spot our own position in the world, in society and in art. “This is political” is based on the fact that there are always artists and free thinkers who get into trouble first. When a society overthrown by revolution, crisis or war, it is always the artists and intellectuals who are imprisoned, killed or made harmless in different ways.
We will try our very best, use all our resources to make a list of all our colleagues around the world that for any reason are afraid to speak out, are silenced or simply have disappeared. We will try to find out who they are, what has happened to them and what we can do.
“This is political” is initiated by MDT but we want you to join and make it happen.
This is open for everybody. We meet all weekdays at 11.00 and we work until 18.00. All trough August. 3-5 of august we collaborate with the festival Music & Arts at Skeppsholmen, these days you need a ticket to get in.
