Censor's Warhol ban stifles creativity

When censorship is imposed from above according to fluid political taboos, instead of by reference to community values, it can have bizarre results. One is that an exhibition of works by pop artist Andy Warhol and a mainland film about relationships and sexuality find themselves in the same boat.

COUNTRY PURSUITS I grew up on the outskirts of Pittsburgh [in Pennsylvania, the United States], with three brothers and three sisters. We were country kids. My dad ran a junkyard and we all had to work, separating and cleaning raw metal. Just like farm families, we all had to pitch in. My father was Andy Warhol's eldest brother.
