Portrait of the Deportation of the Artist as a Young Man


Link to article in the Europe Now Journal. My article asks whether artistic freedoms and Enlightenment values can co-exist with the conventional anti-immigration politics that have been implemented and cemented by the Centre-right and Centre-left, progressive established political elites of Europe. I use the Netherlands as an example, comparing the censorship against dadaist guerrilla poetess Joke Kaviaar, and the threatened deportations of a Dutch-Iraqi poet (Rodan Al-Ghalidi) and of Indonesian concert pianist Harimada Kusuma, to more classic and conventionally accepted Cold-War examples of censorship.
