In the US you can send a FOIA request for your FBI file:


Someone said their friend did that and got back a single sheet of paper with the words "An artist of no repute"

For an artist, this might ironically be the most damning thing they could receive.

That would make an excellent title for a book for film: "An Artist Of No Repute".

Not sure about now but used to be 99% of Americans had no FBI file. But if you asked for your file they would have to create one.
