Art is a important fact to create independent society which contributes culture and leads men and society to modern world.

Art, which gives meaning to the world and makes it livable, have been voice of conscience against the carnages and deaths of mankind’s history. And it will be.

Art and artist, which are adversative in their essence, shares every wrong in every situation. They don’t bow down to the power or the dominant ones. Art requires to being free by forcing limits of imagination, to being independent and to destroying stereotyped rules. Art, which is concrete form of “Another world is possible.” philosophy, which means hope, is under great threat of censorship and auto censorship which has not been seen in history of men.
