The censorship always present, this time in México. A group integrated by zealots, the clergy and the government authorities stoped a performance feautered by Rocio Boliver, alledgling „morally offensive conduct“. This claim what headed by Mr. Francisco Torres Marmolejo, president of The Comunal Meeting and various local religious extremist. Rocio Boliver -a.k.a. The Frozen grape- performed „Close the Legs“ in the First Encounter of Counterculture.
She was invited to participate in the Conference “February, Art and Erotism at Serrano House” the past 26th of February in Los Lagos city, Guadalajara, México. This participation was canceled as many violent threats were received. „Serrano House“ is administered by both, the University Student Center and its Rector is Mr. Roberto Castelán. The censor group demanded Mr Roberto Castelán’s resignation as he allowed Boliver’s performance participation in the mentioned event.
We condemn the censorship to the free artistic expression from Rocio Boliver. Her performances always criticized the pretended morality of the ruling class. We believe she is being victim of a true witch-hunt. Therefore we request all performance artists in the world to give us your support against censorship. The performance as artistic expression marginal, belonging to the underground movements. It is a universal method to communicate these un-justice and wrong doings to the public. We request feedback, support comments for Rocio Boliver and the free artistic expression to these emails:
