Playlist

17. Juni 2018

For The Uncensored Playlist, 5 acclaimed independent journalists from 5 countries suffering from strict government censorship teamed up with Musical Director Lucas Mayer to turn 10 articles that had previously been censored into 10 uncensored pop songs. These songs were then uploaded onto freely available music streaming sites. Allowing truth to be slipped back into the countries where it had once been forbidden.

[Besser spät als nie; denn dieses Projekt habe ich gerade erst gefunden: Die Meinungsfreiheit in der digitalen Welt wird zunehmend von staatlicher Internetzensur bedroht. Das bedeutet, dass die Menschen in vielen Ländern von unabhängigen Nachrichtenseiten und Blogs abgeschnitten sind und damit um ihr Recht auf freie Information gebracht werden.

Zum „Welttag gegen Internetzensur“ am 12. März 2018 hat Reporter ohne Grenzen ein Schlupfloch für die Wahrheit geschaffen, um diese wachsende Zensur zu umgehen: The Uncensored Playlist.

Medienfreiheit ist in restriktiven Gesellschaften kaum vorhanden – Music Streaming Dienste hingegen schon. Deshalb haben im Rahmen des Projekts fünf renommierte, unabhängige Journalisten aus fünf Ländern, die unter starker Zensur leiden, mit unserem Musical Director Lucas Mayer zusammengearbeitet:

So wurden aus zehn zensierten Artikeln zehn unzensierte Popsongs – die dann auf frei verfügbare Music Streaming Plattformen hochgeladen wurden. Journalisten wurden zu Musikern auf Spotify, Deezer und Apple Music – und brachten die Wahrheit zurück zu denen, denen sie zuvor von repressiven Regimen vorenthalten wurde.]

„At the end of 2017, more than 300 journalists will spend the holidays in prison because of their profession. Today, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) launches its holiday-themed campaign to raise awareness of attacks perpetrated by the world’s press freedom predators, who for another consecutive year, have refused to gift journalists with their freedom!“

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is unveiling its new video campaign, “War reporters.” Its release coincides with the publication of RSF’s 50th book in the “100 photos for press freedom” series – this one dedicated to the work of Robert Capa.

Created by the advertising agency BETC (Production Stink and Director Owen Trevor), this video highlights the urgency of supporting photoreporters, without whom we would never know the realities of war.

Let’s support those who risk their lives every day to keep us informed and provide us with independent images that are very different from the official ones served up by governments.

As the photoreporter James Nachtwey said: “I have been a witness, and these pictures are my testimony. The events I have recorded should not be forgotten and must not be repeated.”
There are the official images. And there is the reality. Photoreporters are heroes. They are men and women who put their life on the line every day.

The craft has lost 40 percent of its personnel in the past 15 years. Supporting them is really urgent. Thanks to them, newspapers manage to publish reportage photos of great quality. New festivals enable photoreporters to continue working independently and to experience the public’s interest, which proves that the demand is there.

Let’s support photoreporters, so that they are able to work in way that provides a vision of the world that is nuanced, human and complex, one that makes a debate possible.

Let’s support those who show us what the official images don’t show.
