Tập 3: Browse Germany’s ‘Parthenon’ of Banned Books
– [Narrator] In Kassel, Germany, for a limited time only, there is a replica of the Greek structure,
The Parthenon, and it’s made with over 100,000 banned books. The ‘Parthenon of Books’
is an installation that is part of The Document of 14 art show. The exhibit is from South American artist, Martin Minujín. Her aim is to spark a debate about the issues of censorship in literature. To achieve that, she has collected over a hundred thousand copies of 170 different books that have been banned throughout the world through various stages of history. The books include everything from Mark Twain’s Adventures of Tom Sawyer to Cecily von Ziegesar’s Gossip Girl. It is not a coincidence that The Parthenon of Books is located in this German park as it was here that Nazi’s burned over 2,000 books by Jewish or Marxist writers in the early 1930s. The books for this project were donated by the general public. And once the installation is complete, they will be handed out to visitors with the hope of inspiring readers for years to come.
