Freedom of Art / Art of Freedom

Wednesday, November 25, 8pm Artistic freedom has been at the heart of recent heated debates in Israel and internationally. What is the relationship between art and the state? Should there be limits to freedom of speech in art? If so, will art still be the same? In order to shed further light on this issue, which is at stake in many places in the world and also in Israel, the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) and the Goethe-Institut Israel are holding a series of discussions that focus on international examples. For the second event in this series Georg Seeßlen will analyze artistic freedom in Germany.

Respondents: Ya’akov Ahimeir, Salwa Nakkara Moderator: Dan Yakir

 Georg Seeßlen, Film critic, writer, journalist and lecturer at several universities
 Ya’akov Ahimeir , senior Israeli journalist, and a television and radio personality.  Salwa Nakkara, theater and film actress. Steven Beck, Director of the International Relations and Resource Development Department of ACRI
