Start of the Redistribution of Forbidden Books - Friedrichsplatz - Kassel

On Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 10 am, Marta Minujín will launch the redistribution of the books to the people of Kassel and its visitors. After finishing the work on Saturday, she will take off the first book on Sunday and hand it over to a visitor. At 12pm, noon, she will address the ausience with a short speech again. With this act of redistribution, the artist aims to express the ephemeral and transitional status of this anti-monumental work of art. This collective public space has been shaped and defined by more than the donated books, which emphasize resistance against censorship. This singular, precarious architecture was also designed by all donors, visitors, and institutions that, through their gesture of donating, expressed the importance of the gift and the value of concern.How do I obtain a book? We will be happy to redistribute books from the Parthenon to you. On Sunday, Spetember 10, visitors are invited to take their books from the Parthenon themsleves.When books are redistributed by the documenta 14 team later, this is done on a random basis, which means that you will not be able to choose specific titles.In the interest of the environment, we would ask that you dispose of the plastic packaging in the proper manner. Only as long as supplies last. Claims to legal entitlement will not be recognized.
