Brazilian artists and public art institutions are recently facing a wave of right-wing protests across the country. Conservative forces are attacking culture, depicting public funded art as something that has to please or represent the majority, while new censorship laws and legislations that may restrict artistic freedom are discussed. Many of the Brazilian artists that are present during the festival will share experiences and thoughts on this situation, as something that is not only happening in their country, but also as larger threat for other contexts.
