Past Event

To commemorate these anniversaries, join cultural professionals, academics and artists for an exploration into the ways in which the arts have both conformed, and actively confronted censorship. You'll discover how codes of what constitutes immoral or obscene material have shifted over time - looking at examples of film, theatre, performance, paintings, prints, and the role of museums and galleries.

Part of the V&A Performance Festival 20th – 29th April 2018.
