Art Exhibit Hopes To Draw Attention To Imprisoned Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange

( – An art exhibit featuring a collaboration between Wikileaks and arts organizations called a/political and the Wau Holland Foundation began in London, last Friday, March 24th. “States of Violence” features 15+ artists including Dread Scott, Vivienne Westwood, and Ai Weiwei as well as never-before-seen top-secret government documents.

The show was designed to help draw awareness to Julian Assange’s imprisonment, which approaches its April 11th anniversary. In 2019, he was hauled out of the Ecuadorian embassy, largely thanks to the efforts of neoconservatives in the Trump administration, and has been imprisoned in London ever since as his extradition to the U.S. is debated endlessly.

Gabriel Shipton, Assange’s brother, appeared alongside their father on Tucker Carlson Tonight to discuss the case. He called the cables “unique near history” and suggested they should be available in every library as a case study of what happens when one government accumulates too much power and influence. He also reminded viewers that Assange has never had a trial, and is imprisoned for doing the same thing good journalists do every day: expose the truth powerful people want to be hidden from public scrutiny.

If extradited to the U.S. there is little chance of him receiving a fair trial due to the negative impact his journalism has had on both major political parties and their avatars. The pro-war faction has been especially embarrassed and exposed by Assange, and they’ve punished him and made him an example and lied about him endlessly while he was isolated and unable to defend himself from prison.

This exhibit comes as additional press is putting public pressure for the release of Assange. His wife was interviewed for a lengthy piece in The Times, in which she recounts her trips to Belmarsh, their wedding behind bars, and the overall impact his imprisonment has had on their relationship and their two sons, aged 4 and 5. The worst part for her is not-knowing when, if ever, her husband will be released.
