The Uncensored Playlist
While in the world’s most-censored countries many news websites and blogs are blocked by oppressive governments, music-streaming platforms such as Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music are freely accessible. Using this online loophole to evade censorship, DDB Berlin helped turn five acclaimed journalists from five repressed countries into music artists. In this project created for Reporters Without Borders Germany, ten previously censored articles were turned into lyrics and then uploaded onto music streaming platforms as uncensored pop songs, making them freely available in the countries where there is no freedom of the press. On the 12th of March, World Day Against Cyber Censorship, all the songs came together as The Uncensored Playlist.
