The Free Speech Blog: Official blog of Index on Censorship » Is nothing sacred?

… at the launch of Index’s on Censorship magazine’s “Art Issue” on Wednesday at the Free Word Centre … [a]rtists Langlands & Bell gave a firsthand account of what it was like to have their work censored by the Tate despite their willingness to alter parts of the work to ensure the gallery was not in contempt of court. Ben Langlands spoke of the frustration they felt at not being able to show their work in its entirety – and with Tate for not being transparent about the reasons behind the removal of their film  ”Zardad’s Dog”, part of their Turner-nominated The House of Osama Bin Laden.
