Censorship is anathema to the Fluxus spirit. However, exhibited works cannot violate Canadian law. Fortunately, the laws protecting artistic freedom of expression are relatively strong in Canada. Basically, anything goes, except child pornography and hate speech. Hate speech includes, "advocating genocide", "publicly inciting hatred", and "promoting hatred".
Given the history of persecution of sexual minorities, the curators are committed to including artworks that may depict or document manifestations of homophobia, provided that such works do not violate the law.
It is illegal to produce, distribute, or possess child pornography in Canada, as such work deemed to be such by the curators, will be destroyed upon receipt. Reference: Criminal Code of Canada
NOTICE: The curators reserve the right to refuse to exhibit and/or document any submission at their absolute and sole discretion.
