Over recent years it has become increasingly clear that the formal and informal codes, rules and norms that determine our freedoms and rights in the public sphere no longer function adequately. In particular, the (re)definition and (re)interpretation of the freedom of expression are under discussion.


The political and philosophical concept of the public sphere must be rearticuled. Open 10 examines this issue in relation to art, public space and publicness. This cahier specifically addresses issues around contemporary symbolism and freedom of (artistic) expression in relation to Western notions of tolerance and forms of extremism. This issue examines visions, models and provocations by artists, designers and theorists - especially those that present alternative standpoints.
