Ministry of Culture

“Freedom of expression is one of the foundations of democracy and must be safeguarded. Threats and hate against freedom of speech are unacceptable, and the freedom of art must be defended at all times. Culture must be accessible to all and contribute to reducing segregation, for example, through secure living environments and free access to literature. Culture will emerge from the crisis stronger and have the best conditions for a jumpstart.”
