Ruling Out Art

Media Art Meets Law in Ontario's Censor Wars

In the 1980s, the Ontario Board of Censors began to subject media artists' work to the same cuts, bans, and warning labels as commercial film. This innovative exploration of how art and law intersected in the ensuing censor wars turns a spotlight on the powerful role that artists can play in the administration of culture. When artists and their anticensorship allies mounted grassroots protests and entered courts of law, they impacted how the province interpreted freedom of expression. The language of the law in turn shaped the way artists conceived of their own practices.
