Turkey: The Freemuse Files on Censorship of the Arts

14 December 2016

For almost 20 years, Freemuse has documented violations on freedom of musical expressions and since 2012 also violations on other art forms in Turkey. ‘Turkey – The Freemuse Files’ is the first in a series of Freemuse compilations.

The idea is to provide our readers, network partners and policy makers with an easy, quick overview of censorship in the past and present by country or by topic.

This compilation presents a selection from the hundreds of Freemuse documents and publications on violations on artistic freedom in Turkey. You can find much more on our websites, artsfreedom.freemuse.org and freemuse.org.
