Re: “The Shame of the Mural Censors — Why Art and History Matter

Thank you for this insightful article and thank you for not falling into the freedom of speech trap that others have. Placing the destruction of these murals into a free speech issue is not only incorrect but a losing proposition. Thats because that argument allows for accusations of these murals being hate speech and the comparison of the murals to removal of statues in southern university campuses which this issue has nothing to do with. Unfortunately though, media outlets have gone there.

This is about erasing history, taking content out of context and using it as the reason for destroying the vessel that holds that content. My wife and I are San Francisco media artists who recently moved to Pittsburgh, PA. We produced a 20+ minute video-essay about the controversy entitled: Expulsion.
