Photography and Installation
Was there notification of removal and, if so, what was the reason given?:
“Your post Has been deleted we removed your post because it doesn’t
follow our guidelines again, your account may be restricted or disabled.”
Was there the opportunity to appeal?
I don’t think so, I would have appealed if I saw a place to appeal.
What, if any, were the consequences of the removal for you?
I wanted to exhibit the Installation photograph I recently made as part of the Bodo Biennale in Bodo, Norway on my Instagram. I self-censored the photograph to meet Instagram’s rules for it not to be removed, but the photograph was still
deleted and my entire account was threatened with deletion.
For an artists to be threatened with disablement of their entire account, when they are properly self-censoring their images, is maddening.
