PERE LLOBERA QUITS ARCO BECAUSE CENSORSHIP
It is known the censorship exercised by IFEMA on the artwork “Presos Políticos en España“
It is known the censorship exercised by IFEMA on the artwork “Presos Políticos en España” (Political Prisoners in Spain) by Santiago Sierra, at the ARCO art fair. The gallery representing such work, was “invited” to withdraw the photographs and leave the wall empty.
Unknown is the reaction or solidarity action of the rest of the artists and galleries attending Arco for nonexistent at all, except for the noble action of the artist Pere Llobera, who withdrew his work in disagreement with that censorship.
In this showcase of arts, vanities, professional and economic interests, it is difficult to find real freedom of expression.
Thank you, Pere Llobera for exercising it.
