The new ITI yearbook is published

Freedom and democ­racy- these are the values, which must be defended worldwide

Especially in the past year the rights and the freedom of artists were seriously threatened and restrained by the raising populism and religious fanatism.

On the occasion of the many censorship actions in Poland, Hungary or Russia (which massively restricted the artists in their work opportunities) the annual of ITI for 2017 is focusing on the symptomatical developments of nationalism and populism, which try to hinder a democratic and culturally open togetherness. The new yearbook is thematically continuing the row of the past two annuals of ITI „Understanding“ (2015) und „Who is Europe?“ (2016). The annual is accessible  here.
