“We the Nipple” Is Battling Social Media Censorship
Working to fight censorship against women's bodies
Entertainment 13 Jun 2019

The New York photographer Spencer Tunick has teamed up with the National Coalition Against Censorship to fight nipple censoring for their recent “nude art action” campaign, We The Nipple.

A group of nude models were photographed in New York last week and Facebook has agreed to consider new nudity guidelines after the campaign launched, with the help of an advisory group of artists, activists and curators. 

Tunick says: “To me, every pixelated nipple only succeeds in sexualizing the censored work. As a 21st-century artist, I rely on Instagram. It’s the world’s magazine and to be censored on it breaks my spirit.”
