Creating Spaces of Freedom : Culture in Defiance Paperback / softback

Edited by Els van der Plas, Marlous Willemsen, Malu Halasa


For centuries, people in the creative arts, when faced with severe threats to their cultural free expression, have sought alternative strategies and platforms.

Whether Sudanese or Algerian, whether fleeing vicious civil wars or governmental oppression, unrecognised artists and musicians have found ways of avoiding limitations and transcending repercussions.

This book reveals some of the alternative spaces where banned art seeks refuge, while continuing to communicate its inspiring message of freedom and hope.

It is a unique cultural document with illustrations of cartoons, art, books, CDs, web sites, TV and news.
