Excerpt: more than the “right to communicate”

February 23, 2011 § Leave a comment

“Both structurally and normatively, it would not be enough merely to promote cultural and artistic diversity. The relevant question here is not simply whether people can exercise “the right to communicate in their own way about what moves them” and thereby to form their own “identity.” The relevant question is whether existing or future arts organizations can enable people to communicate in the right way and thereby to achieve cross-cultural recognition.”
