MoMA: Charlie Hebdo, Zero Tolerance and Freedom of Speech

On 2 February 2015, Karl Sharro, Director of PLP Architecture was part of the symposium panel entitled, Charlie Hebdo, Zero Tolerance and Freedom of Speech at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Like many around the globe, people in the arts are contemplating the complex issues of free speech after the tragic events at Charlie Hebdo. So Creative Time, MoMA PS1, and The Museum of Modern Art, in association with Thomson Reuters, have joined together to create a timely and thoughtful conversation that dives into some of the difficult questions raised. Journalist, author, and former editor of The Sunday Times Sir Harold Evans moderated a discussion that included artist Kader Attia; artist Sharon Hayes; actor, comedian, and producer Aasif Mandvi; Vice News editor-in-chief Jason Mojica; author and historian Simon Schama; and Karl. In parallel, works by Hayes and other artists such as Pussy Riot, Yoko Ono and Halil Altindere were on view in the exhibition Zero Tolerance at MoMA PS1, which reflected artists' responses to the ongoing tension between freedom and control.
