Ethics & freedom of speech

Connected.ART will work hard to be an apolitical / non-political entity being able to embrace all different artists in the world expressing their unique and often contradicting expressions. We will allow all types of expressions both against and towards anything in this world in the true nature of “Freedom of speech”. We will allow all type of artworks, even artworks attacking single groups or exposed/public individuals. In the name of art and freedom we will not set any limits; Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice.

The above stated as the foundational principle of our work, we are aware of the following: Despite our efforts to be as apolitical as possible, Connected.ART will be considered political as this is basically a matter of philosophy. Whatever we do or not do will be a statement of something. We want to stretch everything as far as possible; provoke, awake, create passion and love, but in some cases the freedom of speech will be in conflict with other important rights. As a general principle, which Connected.ART choose to follow, the freedom of expression may not limit the right to privacy, as well as the honor and reputation of others. The latter does only count when we talk about nonpublic figures.

As art should be available for all humans in all ages, Connected.ART will work to direct artworks that “obviously” is of adult nature to areas clarified for this “18+ areas”. The borderlines between non-adult material and adult material will naturally be a matter of discussion. The line has to be drawn somewhere and sometimes it will not be consequent due to subjective analysis (until Artificial Intelligence is taking the control - and this will be debated as well, in good human spirit). We expect criticism in the future both for being too liberal and too conservative, but our respond will always be: "Please continue to debate and continue to produce beautiful and disgusting art."

The art should be the last stand for us humans to express our self, in good and evil, and the limitations of expression should be at an absolute minimum.
