Artists in Slovakia censored an exhibition

The owner of the exhibition space in Bratislava's Jurkoviova teplaren censored the exhibition MEDIUMM IS THE MESSAGE for Slovak artists Anna Maria Benová and Zuzana Svatik

After the gallery approached these two artists a few months ago and they prepared the exhibition in collaboration with curator Katarina Jankechova and opened it at the gala opening, the curator and the artists were first asked to cancel the exhibition without their knowledge and then their works were manipulated. Therefore, in protest against this censorship by Alto Real Estate, the two artists decided to cover all the works of the exhibition. Here is their statement.

Bohemian Taboo expresses its absolute support to both artists and the curator regarding their decision. Censorship of art is unacceptable in any form. On the internet, in the media and in galleries.
