Censurato/Censured

Processual work: this work is the conclusion of a critical process concerning the relation about censorship and art. Progettozero(+) proposed an installation for the exhibition “The Word Is Yours: the most used words in contemporary art”. The work has been refused because the curators were warned not to exhibit it in the show by the lawyers of the foundation. We asked the curators to write a refusal letter, in wich they explained the reasons why they could not accept the work. At the end, the work in the show was the original copy of the letter written and signed by the curators. The censored proposal suggested a strong critical reflection about the socio-political control in language.
