ANC called to drop court challenge over the Spear

Lusanda Bill
29 May 2012

The Freedom of Expression Institute has called on the ANC to drop its court challenge seeking to ban the painting by artist Brett Murray.

The institute says it recognises that the painting has caused much hurt and has offended large numbers of people.

The Freedom of Expression said it cannot support calls for the banning of artwork, nor threats to the artist and gallery, nor any attempt to narrow the space artists have to do their work freely and critically.

The pressure put on the City Press newspaper by the ANC has also been slammed.
