Argentinian 74-year-old artist Marta Minujín built a gigantic copy of Parthenon with 100,000 copies of the prohibited books.
According to the artist, this place represents resistance to political oppression.
The Parthenon of Books in Kassel, Germany, is part of the art festival ‘Documenta 14’.
With the help of students at Kassel University, Minujin has identified 170 titles that are prohibited or banned in different regions of the world.
Later, he built a gigantic replica of this world-famous temple from these books, steel and plastic plates.
But the most important of all is Adolf Hitler’s book “Mein Kampf” (My Struggle), which will not take part in the Parthenon because of the bad reputation of Nazis.
The truth is that Minujín’s work is on the historical scene where the Nazis burned 2,000 books in 1933.
