About This Project

This work is the conclusion of a process reflecting the relationship between censorship and art.
We proposed a very strong provocative installation for the exhibition called “The Word Is Yours: the most used words in contemporary art”. The work has been refused because the curators were warned not to exhibit it in the show by the lawyers of the hosting foundation.
We asked the curators to write a refusal letter in which they explained the reasons why they could not accept the work.
At the end, the exhibited work was the original copy of the letter written and signed by the curators. The censored proposal suggests a critical reflection about the socio-political forms of control.
