Cc. Carbon copy: Artists, human rights defenders, dissent and artistic freedom
Freedom of expression and artistic freedom are human rights. Sometimes artists are also human rights defenders. This concept emerges in connection with Soviet dissidents. They used the clandestine self-publishing system of censored works known as Samizdat. Self-publishing was done with a typewriter and carbon paper, typing the banned book. Cc are the abbreviation of an email header meaning carbon copy. This artistic research and installation titled -Cc: Carbon copy- embody the process of a dissident when typing a censored book.
