“Art and politics as usual”

The Art Newspaper just published a short article by Lene Berg, the artist whose work was allegedly censored by Cooper Union. We covered this story last year, with an update linking to a website which details the events surrounding the removal of Berg’s work. A bit from her Art Newspaper article:

If the Civil Liberties Union is right in assuming that the banners were removed because of their content, this case is probably a good example of how censorship works in a liberal democracy. Instead of direct censorship, we have rules and regulations that allow people in power to stop whatever does not please them, without making their reasons public.
