What Happens When We Censor Artists

The National Art Gallery has removed 4 artworks from Ahmad Fuad Osman’s retrospective exhibition, titled ‘At The End Of The Day Even Art Is Not Important’. The artist has issued an open letter calling for the gallery to close the entire exhibition, rather than let it run in its “compromised state”. We will be speaking to Fuad himself to find out more.
