This is a very useful topic , in some countries censorship on arts or books just a way to guarantee their rights , others see that it could be dangerous if they just ignore it , indeed no one has the right to prevent something to be published or to be banned except the owner himself , as he can see how he present his work and to whom it's targeted

censorship is okay if v have a reasonable censorship board .....but censors, i guess are generally made ....based on survey of people's reactions to certain things.......and its always a question of the larger audience,cos most people whether ,right /wrong get hurt through some controversial statements/actions...yes the censorsip board is in most times a barrier to experiencing reality in most plain manner,and constricts creativity to some level .....but it is also important that art that entertains and informs people is used in a responsible manner ..such that the geniune issues,ideas and creations are not ignored/censored ......besides sometimes a banned creation in ny form of art does gain a lot of publicity........big grin

I have seen many art shows that needs proper publishing and there should be many things that can be done properly. I can say that there is always a censorship in art. Some arts deliver the best and it should be remain the same.

Should books, art, music, films be censored? Who should decide what warrants censorship?

For example - many schools have banned books that are consider unsuitable or controversial for youth. Are schools being responsible - ensuring students are not exposed to offensive content? Or are they limiting the intellectual freedom of youth?

What do you think about censorship in the arts?


Personally I would say .. YES they should sensor ... looking at the rate of social problems our world is facing.. we do need to sensor a hell lots of things I guess..

Art is very subjective and some people can be offended while others won't. I think censorship makes sense when art is public funded and if the majority of tax payers find an artist offensive, they should have the right to censor this artist. Censorship is about making the majority of people happy.

I think I get the gist of what you're trying to say here, but could you please use proper Capitalization and punctuation?

stephanie,
the topic is about censorship.
when im writing in a casual setting, i have adopted casual typing.
when its necessary, i can use appropriate punctuation.
you have illustrated the point; regarding censorship, what do you think?
you think i should do what makes you happy and i think i should do what makes me happy.

personally l thinkn censorship of the arts is wrong. it stifles creativiy and imagination and aslo doesn't allow for freedom of expresssion. art is meant to be interpreted and different people view it in different ways.

I would like to direct the attention of this blog to the case of Ai Weiwei in China. His case is one of the most extreme when it comes to censorship in the arts, but it shows an important possibility for all levels of censorship. The History News Network is featuring an article <http> which describes the fate of Ai Weiwei from the beginnings of his run ins with the Chinese government until his recent disappearance.

"Like so many other people of conscience and voice in the past two years, he is gone, swallowed by the insatiable fear of the state’s authoritarian belly."

My point here is simple: art is an expression of the artist, and to repress art is to repress the artist. As seen in Ai Weiwei's case, repressing the artist is something than some are more than willing to do so that the art is not seen or heard. My question is this: what right do we have to allow things to get to this extreme?

Censorship will depend on how the art is presented and of course, strict guidance should be given to children to avoid creating the wrong impression on them. There are forms of arts that need not be censored, but likewise, thee are books and paintings that speak of nothing but obscenity. mad

The fact there is censorship in art is completely stupid because we were taught the human body is a beautiful thing and not some kind of monster.

I'm not going to say that I don't think there should be any censorship in the arts, but I do think that it should be very minimal. For example, the books being read in school shouldn't matter. Coming from experience, what kids read on their own time is going to be much wore than what is could be provided for them in the classroom.

Those who love music feel a strong need to defend it. Music has a way of speaking to people in a way that can't be put into the simplest words. Some find music to be pointless phrases strung together with a few instruments playing in the background. For them, they most likely wonder what can be so special. Why be so passionate about the freedom of this art? Banning music is banning the greatest form of expression.
One of the most extraordinary gifts in life is music. Having the ability to truly help people, music’s power and influential abilities are underestimated. Although music can cause immense sadness, it also has the ability to cause profuse happiness in the daily lives of many. Strangely, there are people who exist in this world who don’t particularly enjoy music, and the words “music censorship” most likely mean nothing to them. Maybe for one person, sports are their interest. What would happen if their favorite sport was banned? Never again could they publicly play and compete in their sport or experience the simple joy it brings them in the darkest of times. I believe that would be enough to crush one’s spirit.
Adolescence is a crucial time in a person’s life, when teens need to be heard. Music is a great outlet for this, as well as being an outlet for anger, passion, grief, love, or any emotion one might want to express. Everyone should have the same right because music is not only an art, but music is also a way of life.
