In a 2020 interview, artist Maria Thereza Alves discussed the importance of having “the freedom to develop what is necessary.” Many artists with agendas for political or social change that are (or once were) outside the mainstream have struggled with the question of reconciling these agendas with the existing state of the media they work in, including Alanis Obomsawin. The contributors will discuss on the basis of Alves’s statement which, at the same time, also suggests a philosophical tension or implicit connection between freedom and necessity in political and ethical commitments.
