"Non-Participation is a collection of letters written by artists to decline invitations to participate in cultural events for various political or ethical reasons. These letters have been collected through an ongoing open call for submissions, complemented by historical research. Issues raised in these artists' letters include the non-payment of artists' fees, the denial of copyright ownership, censorship, and controversy over funding sources, among many others." Artists stand up!
