According to the artist, this wonderful move, symbolizes the resistance to political repression and what makes it even more powerful is the location.

Minujin’s work stands on a historic site where the Nazis burned some 2,000 books in 1933 by Jewish or Marxist writers.The Parthenon of Books in Kassel, Germany is part of the Documenta 14 Art Festival. With the help of students from Kassel University, Minujin identified titles of numerous books that had been banned in different countries around the world.
He actually built the full-size replica of the amazing Greek temple from those books, plastic sheeting, and steel.
The work has exactly the same dimensions as the Parthenon – 70 meters (230 feet) in length, 31 meters in breadth and 10 meters in height.
