Competitive authoritarian governments promote a uniformizing and conservative understanding of culture and art. These governments develop cultural policies to censor "others", as they usually call dissidents of their policies. In this study, I conducted a series of interviews during my secondment in Poland to understand what cultural policies the PiS government has developed as a competitive authoritarian government and which artists and cultural workers it has targeted with these policies.
