Statement of the CIMAM board on South Korean Government’s blacklist of artists

The board of CIMAM is deeply concerned to hear of the blacklist of artists that has come to light during the current investigations into government corruption in South Korea.

The existence of such a list and the uncertainly around how it has been implemented undermines the reputation of the arts institutions under the control of the Government.

That artists would be secretly banned from exhibiting because of their political views is not acceptable to the international artworld and the board of CIMAM deplores such actions.
