4. Leon Ferrari, FF Alumn, inspires big anti-censorship rallies in Buenos Aires, Argentina

A judge ordered the closing of an exhibition in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Leon Ferrari, FF Alumn. There have been all kinds of protests and campaigns from artists and institutions against censorship. Approximately 2000 people attended a protest a few days ago. You can see an article with photos at:

Just today, though, the Buenos Aires city justices concluded, in a divided vote, to reopen Leon Ferrari's show at Centro Cultural Recoleta that was closed on December 17 by a judge because it was considered that was hurting religious feelings. It seems that the show that was classified as "blasphemous" by authorities of the Catholic Church, will be able to open its doors again on January 2.

In the decision, the justices of Buenos Aires, ordered to the city government to put a sign at the gallery door that will alert the visitors of the show's content and the possible impact that some of the art pieces may have on their religious sentiments. It was ordered too that that warning should appear in any publication about the show.

Religious organizations were considering their next steps and were evaluating the possibility of an appeal.
