“The decision follows threats made by the Chinese authorities relating to the artist. Whilst the organisers’ value freedom of expression, the safety of our partners remains a major concern.”

The organizers regret having to make this decision and hope there will be a chance for the public to see Badiucao’s work in the future.

Badiucao is a Chinese political cartoonist, artist and rights activist.
