* China: Goya to Beijing
"In the politically responsive spirit of Goya, internationally acclaimed contemporary artists have gathered together to remember the tragic events which took place in Tiananmen Square, Beijing, China, June 4, 1989.
The purpose of this exhibition is to commemorate the anniversary of this political struggle for democracy. It is the occasion to explore the contemporary artistic expression as a vehicle for political commentary.
The underlying universal theme of the exhibition is, in essence, the yearning for freedom - freedom from oppression - the freedom to express oneself unrestrained by political force. It is this sentiment that joined the Chinese students together - a democratic movement costing many of them their lives on June fourth, 1989."

"a refereed international electronic journal that helps focus academic attention on the study of injustices around the world. The editors welcome essays devoted to understanding the nature of injustice, types of injustice, and the history, politics, and moral psychology of particular injustices, ranging from global to local events. Disagreements over which injustices warrant attention also are part of the problematique of IS. Since IS has an interdisciplinary orientation, its articles should aim to be accessible to the general reader."
