Payal Kapadia's film “A Night of Knowing Nothing” (India/France 2021) shows it clearly: artistic freedom presupposes that spaces for art and culture are open, democratic and anti-discriminatory. Repression of artists and cultural workers can manifest itself in many different ways.
On 7 April, a conversation about violations of artistic freedom and alliances of solidarity, focusing on Ukraine and India, is taking place at 19:30 in Top Kino in Vienna, with Sarita Jenamani (Pen Austria, Poet), Dariia Kuzmych (artist) & Klara Koštal (Austrian Commission for UNESCO), moderated by Cristina Peregrina.
