London: Passion for Freedom
"Censored works shown for the first time in the City of Freedom -- London. Passion for Freedom asked artists to respond to these three questions: 1. What is freedom? 2. How easy is it to lose it? 3. How hard is it to get it back? The "Passion For Freedom" Exhibition this year consisted of 40 artists from 20 countries from all over the world. They came from Canada, USA, Poland, the Netherlands, Afghanistan, Iran and from all over the UK. Some of the works have never been shown before due to art galleries fear of consequences. 5 of the artists exhibited their work under changed names. Although anonymous they attended the private view but asked photos or videos in which they appear not to be published. Freedom is like air -- you don't see it, you don't appreciate it until you start to lose it. www.passionforfreedom.co.uk facebook.com/passionforfreedom"
