A Mouth is Always Muzzled, communicates the extraordinary story of the ways art brings hope in perilous times and art’s insistent role in contemporary politics and life. Weaving disparate topics from sugar and British colonialism to attacks on free speech and Facebook activism…and traveling a jagged path across the Americas, Africa, India, and Europe. Natalie Hopkinson argues that art is where the future is negotiated.
