Despite the proliferation of networks and self-publishing mechanisms, censorship is even more complex for society across states, nations and the internet. Steve Kurtz (Critical Art Ensemble) and Egyptian artist and curator Shady El Noshokaty draw on their experience of censorship to talk about the importance of freedom of speech and the role artists can have on challenging states’ monopoly on knowledge.
