Freedom of Expression under Attack

Freedom of Expression under Attack

‘If I give up my art, will I still have a heart?’

Authoritarian regimes rely on a range of censorship tools to target dissent and maintain stability. They employ a range of tactics, both direct and indirect, to limit free expression. What is the cost to public discourse when these voices are silenced? What is the human cost?

Join the International Service for Human Rights, the Club Suisse de la Presse, and Cartooning for Peace for a discussion of these trends, with a focus on the work and life of Chinese dissident artist Badiucao. The evening will conclude with a screening of the documentary China’s Artful Dissident.
