Nuclear Colonialism - Censorship of Art in Essex

Posted: 19th July 2021

An Australian artist has accused a group of Conservative councillors of

using “bullying strategies” to silence and censor her work after an
installation she created to highlight Britain’s “identity as a colonial
nuclear state” was removed from a park in Essex. The councillors
threatened to “take action against the work” if it was not removed,
according to Metal, the arts organisation that commissioned and then
removed the installation from Gunners Park in Southend.
