Freedom of Speech
How Free is Free?
Freedom of speech is the right to express your opinions. To be able to express yourself freely and critically is a human right and a prerequisite for democracy. Should one be allowed to say anything? If not – how free is free?
In the exhibition "Freedom of Speech–How Free is Free?" these issue and more are discussed. Journalists, artist and peace activists, as Nobel Laureates Aung San Suu Kyi and Carl von Ossietzky, are highlighted to scrutinize freedom of speech from a religious, political and societal perspecitve. With the aid of films, images, sound and interactive games, both historical and current examples on how freedom of speech have been infringed are presented.
The exhibtion is produced by the Nobel Peace Center in collaboration with the production company Hybris Film and scenographer Kristin Bredal. The Stockholm leg of the exhibition was expanded with examples from Sweden.
