  • Disputes over free expression in the arts have always loomed as struggles between creativity and repression, transgression and outrage, candor and hypocrisy But while high profile shootouts at art museums and less visible skirmishes at schools, libraries, and theaters persist, overt censorship is no longer the only, or the most dire, threat to free expression On the oneDisputes over free expression in the arts have always loomed as struggles between creativity and repression, transgression and outrage, candor and hypocrisy But while high profile shootouts at art museums and less visible skirmishes at schools, libraries, and theaters persist, overt censorship is no longer the only, or the most dire, threat to free expression On the one hand, society has become accepting of provocative imagery, with media conglomerates often leading the way in the depreciation of taboos On the other hand, artists, while enjoying some unprecedented liberties, are hemmed in by new constraints that often fall beyond the range of First Amendment protection The current terrain bears little resemblance to the culture wars of a decade ago, much less to what the First Amendment s Framers could have imagined And since September 11, 2001, the frontlines of the free expression debate have been shifting once again Based on a Columbia University conference organized by the National Arts Journalism Program, The New Gatekeepers explores the reconfigured ranks of those who decide what the public gets to see, hear and read, from struggles over intellectual property and copyright, to continuing debates about acceptable and offensive content in the cultural marketplace, to the less visible biases of the arts funding system This heavily illustrated book also includes a historical overview of censorship and contributions by 40 scholars, artists, experts and journalists from around the United States Discussed and participating artists include Edouard Manet, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Robert Mapplethorpe, Richard Serra, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Andres Serrano, Carolee Schneemann, Dread Scott, Gran Fury, Joel Peter Witkin, Kara Walker, Jock Sturges, Chris Ofili and Tom Sachs.
