Short description: ARIA Research Seminar: In times of war and repression, artists and intellectuals often become the first victims of political measures

In times of war and repression, artists and intellectuals often become the first victims of political measures.

How does authoritarianism actually work and how do artists and intellectuals produce their works in such a context? Can art become a spokesperson for all in such dramatic situations? How do artists become civil actors and what kind of risks do they take?
