The Parthenon of Books

The Parthenon of Books in the German city of Kassel is the work of Argentinian artist Marta Minujín, who constructed this replica of the Athens monument using 100,000 once-banned books. It is the second time Minujín has built such a temple – the first was in 1983 in her native Buenos Aires using books forbidden by the military dictatorship of Argentina.
