Iran: Exploration of censorship in magazine theme issue

ArteEast Quarterly: C+: The Iran Issue

“This issue set out to explore the pitfalls of potential gain by way of loss. An editorial goal in the risky public exploration of censorship — positioned both within the self and the state — is to open the gap for a reading in-between the unexpressed but intended and the unintentionally expressed,” writes guest editor Sandra Skurvida in the editorial of ArteEast’s April 2012 issue.
