100,000 Banned Books, Conceptual Artist Minujín and a Parthenon Replica @documenta_14

This has just got to be the coolest piece of art this year and timely - as we enter a perilous time when democratic freedoms are under outright

"Argentinian conceptual artist Marta
Minujín has just installed The Parthenon of Books in Kassel, Germany as part of
the Documenta 14 art festival. Created from 100,000 banned books, this architectural
replica of the Parthenon in Athens is a work in progress, with the public being asked to continue bringing volumes with them when visiting the exhibition."

"The Parthenon of Books sits on a space where 2,000 books were burned by the Nazis
as part of the so-called Action against the Un-German Spirit. It's a stark reminder that the written word has consistently been used in actions of censorship throughout history."
