This video focuses on three large-scale public installations that address themes of democracy, internationalism, freedom, and peace through the medium of books. Under the Same Sun exhibition artist Marta Minujín describes and discusses her works The Parthenon of Books, Babel Tower of Books, and Agora of Peace, explaining that they were inspired by the burnings of banned books in Argentina during the military dictatorship. As Minujín says, “Democracy without books is not democracy.”
