All Aboard for Self-Censorship

.

Audiences, funders, critics, media, and governments: what steps should you take if these groups begin to establish themselves on the basis of populism? Should you (or do you need to) censor your work? If so, how can you integrate your practice into these frameworks? Are we already guilty of self-censorship by having standard answers to questions raised by politicians? What is the value of the work after it has undergone a process of self-censorship?
