Members, I have now formally forwarded the petition on censorship to Artreview.com as an email (below). If no response is received I will also forward the petition by post. Hopefully we will have a positive respond soon.
Dear Artreview.com As a representative of a number of members of the artreview community, subscribers to the magazine and users of the website, I would like to draw your attention to a petition objecting to the censorship of our art dictated by your ISP as stated in your community announcement of the 6th of September 2011. http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/artreview-isp-censorship/ We feel that this is yet another example of creative expression suppressed by the rules and regulations of corporate institutions and does not reflect or demonstrate understanding of the long traditions, histories and well established thematic and theoretic concerns of art. Nudity in art has, is and will continue to be a subject matter of significant importance which reflects many of the concerns of the human condition. We feel that it is poor form that you, a well established contemporary art magazine who itself has supported cutting edge and sometimes controversial art are allowing your provider to dictate what is 'acceptable' art and surprised that you have not considered how this issue might be dealt with as your online community grew. We understand that you have a contractual relationship with your ISP who regulate use of its servers and will be unlikely to effect change of their policies and so request that you consider changing your ISP to a more art community friendly provider rather than censor and possibly stunt what is a blossoming community. In addition we request a statement from Artreview.com confirming how this issue is being resolved and as indication of support for artists' rights, your community members, to choose their modes of expression. We hope that this petition will be seen by you as it is intended, an indication of concern on your community members part and that you will protect your constituency. Sincerely Garrett Lynch
