The question of freedom of artistic creation, and of its integral aspect at the boundaries of art, is both intriguing in theoretical terms and significant in virtually every age and culture. Limitation of freedom of artistic creation is an issue that crosses various paradigms, hierarchies of values and normative systems.

The aim of this paper is to give an introduction to the interpretation of Article 73 of the Constitution of the Republic of Poland, which provides for freedom of artistic expression. In particular, the focus is put on the constitutional basis for legally limiting the freedom of artistic creation.
