Forbidden Culture Week highlights artistic freedom and censorship through culture that has at some time, somewhere and for some reason been censored, forbidden or banned.
We increase awareness of the limitations of artistic freedom in the world, in Sweden but also in our own everyday lives. Welcome to a week of forbidden culture and artistic freedom!
Forbidden Culture Week in Malmö
During the Forbidden Culture Week Around Malmö, forbidden story times, tours of censored art and exhibitions about forbidden culture are offered. Young people can take part in workshops on forbidden text, there will be conversations about culture wars but also more light-hearted events such as quizzes about forbidden films. Schools are offered a wide range of programmes through the cultural right of public access.
Public Opening and Community Engagement
Forbidden Culture Week starts with a public opening at Malmö Live and throughout the week Malmö residents are welcomed to take part in and engage in the program. All events arranged by the City of Malmö's operations are free of charge and public.
