The aim of the Bohemian Taboo Road Show is to provide a space for creators to present and the public to discuss topics related to intimacy, sexuality and eroticism in artistic, scientific or historical work. Visual artists who also work with themes of intimacy, nudity, eroticism and sexuality in their work have faced more and more censorship of their work in recent years. This is a modern form of censorship on the internet, especially on the social networks Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube and others. The reasons are not so much legislative or social, but primarily corporate. The original intention was merely to prevent minors from viewing pornography on social networks, but today, thanks to machine learning, which is unable to distinguish pornography from other works, there is massive censorship, so-called banning, of any work with this theme, while pornography remains on the Internet. Creators who want to present their work on social networks then have to devalue their work in various destructive ways, and even then, they are often faced with the deletion of content or entire accounts. The situation is already worrying many renowned galleries and museums, as even the works of famous artists are deleted. The Bohemian Taboo has therefore been discussing the dangers of this censorship with the Ministry of Culture Czech Republic since August 2022 and has also been talking about it in the media.
