DoubleWhy is among the protagonists of the festival of censored arts, for freedom of expression and against anti-blasphemy laws. Art exhibitions, group shows, live performances, talks, screenings, stand-up comedies, on the theme of censorship for religious reasons and blasphemy.
DoubleWhy has drawn and self-produced comics from an early age. She has been working for years as an animator and illustrator, and this has led her to learn about the new, subtle mechanisms of oppression that lead from creative self-castration to the total annihilation of the passion for work. In Warsaw he meets Bess Komentarza and discovers the practice of subvertising: a very simple key can open what previously seemed an impregnable moloch, the techniques acquired over years of work are now used to criticize the system that had almost demolished his desire to create. Then in London she meets other subvertisers, such as the Special Patrol Group collective, Hogre and Illustre Feccia, with whom she organizes actions and workshops around Europe. Together with Hogre, she was denounced for insulting religion because of a work of extraordinary ethical value, entitled Immaculata conceptio in vitro.
Anti-blasphemy laws in Italy and around the world are used to suppress political opponents and dissidents, to censor artists, journalists and free thinking.
The application of a law that should protect an unidentified “religious sentiment” is highly subjective, completely arbitrary. There are countries where even a woman’s song can be considered blasphemous. A reality that moves large sums of money and votes but which cannot be satirized or criticized, becomes untouchable: an unnameable god becomes truly omnipotent even on the political and social level. This is why Ceci n’est pas un blasphème , the festival of censored arts, was born .
The festival enjoys the moral patronage of the Department of Culture of Naples, but to maintain independence and thus guarantee the quality of the curatorship we do not have access to public funds: we are professionals but we work on it as a team of volunteers, we believe in it a lot, if you share the message give us a hand to make it happen: together we can do something great, for art, for poetry, for freedom of expression, against any form of religious abuse!
