The exhibition Forms of Censorship mobilizes some key voices whose work addresses the pattern of artists being de-platformed or silenced for showing support for Palestine. We are an independent curatorial platform flying embroidered banners and pinning contemporary works beside ‘Stop the Occupation’ posters removed from a museum exhibition over two decades ago.

Over the 6-months of Israel’s war on Gaza cultural institutions in Australia have risen to levels of self-censorship that could prevent them from addressing (any) political conflict. Our funded arts organisations still lack human rights policies in their charters. We put the question, when does pattern or form fall prey to a pathology of censorship?
