PUSH/PULL is an online journal sponsored by @culturepusher a platform for ideas and thoughts that are still in development. PUSH/PULL is a virtual venue that allows CP to present a variety of perspectives on civic engagement, social practice, and other issues that need attention.
Issue 7 focuses on artistic freedom and expanded notions of censorship, including conversations with Dread Scott, Svetlana Mintcheva of the National Coalition Against Censorship, and Srirak Plipat of Freemuse, an independent international organization advocating for and defending freedom of artistic expression.
UltraViolet Archive is a collection of endangered creative works including films, graphic novels, music, literature, visual and performing arts that were formerly banned, challenged, or partially censored.
