EL PARTENÓN DE LOS LIBROS. [Kassel, Vila-Matas,M.A.Orthofer]

Atenas en Kassel, Documenta 14

documenta 14 has been going … strong in Athens for a while now, and moves on to home base Kassel soon — and one of the … big installations there is slated to be Marta Minujín’s The Parthenon of Books (a recreation of her 1983 installation El Partenón de libros), featuring: “up to 100,000 books from all over the world which are now in legal circulation again after years of prohibition, or are allowed in some countries and prohibited elsewhere”; you can see many of the titles here, for example.
It looks — work in progress — like this: A nice idea — including the tipping of the monument and getting the books in circulation when it’s done — but I wish it weren’t quite so hideous.  (And recall also Enrique Vila-Matas documenta-novel, The Illogic of Kassel.)
