In this chapter the author discusses how censorship affects discourses of contemporary art in the Republic of Macedonia. The cultural, political and social contexts in Macedonia are outlined and differing standpoints on what constitutes contemporary art practice in that country are discussed. Two case studies are highlighted to allow the reader to gain an understaning of how censorship is deployed as a tactic in erasing, or in rendering illegitamte, critical contemporary art.
