What is Censorpedia?

Censorpedia aids the fight for free expression by providing a living information repository of censorship incidents, information about what is vulnerable to censorship, and a guide to strategies and tactics that have defeated past attempts at censorship.

Censorpedia hosts articles documenting censorship outbreaks: the who, what, when, where and why. The articles categorized as ongoing feature current abuses of free speech rights.

You can also read our online bibliography of sources providing information on censorship incidents throughout history.

Project history

Censorpedia builds on the 1994 art project/internet censorship archive The File Room. Initiated by Muntadas, The File Room was originally produced by Chicago’s Randolph Street Gallery with the support of the School of Art and Design and the Electronic Visualization Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Since 2001 The File Room has been hosted and maintained by the National Coalition Against Censorship.
