SMART TACTICS: Curating Difficult Content

Thanks to the National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC), CIMAM is pleased to offer its members exclusive access to the online version of the book SMART TACTICS: Curating Difficult Content for a limited number of days: 25 – 29 January 2021. The book examines the internal and external pressures curators must navigate when considering potentially controversial material. 


It is pre-emptive self-censorship that presents the greatest challenge to a truly diverse and lively cultural sphere.
