The art issue

Limits of freedom

Our special report explores how censorship is alive and well in the art world. Artistic expression is as vulnerable in democracies as it is in authoritarian regimes when it comes to sex, religion and the limits of tolerance.

Includes articles by: Anish Kapoor takes a stand for artistic freedom; Langlands & Bell talk about a brush with censorship; Yasmine El Rashidi tells how graffiti has become a symbol of freedom in Cairo; Eugenio Merino on Andres Serrano's Piss Christ; Philip Kennicott discusses the return of the culture wars.
