Italian artist Gianluca Constantini, in an interview with Kronos, talked about the situation of the artists in Turkey today: "How can you be a real artist in this moment in Turkey without freedom of expression? It's really hard not to be a regime artist, when journalist, teachers, activists are in jail."
The writer Daniele Giglioli talked to Kronos on the modern discourse of victimhood: "The figure of the victim has taken the place, as an exemplary figure and object of identification, of the former hero. It's a paradigm shift."
Antropogist Dr. Gerald Roche answered our questions about language rights: "The lack of any meaningful international mechanisms relating to language rights means that states are more or less free to do as they please, and all countries in the world exploit this to some degree."
