Installation – 26 book

In Books Covered with Newspaper, he tells us of the fear induced by once-forbidden books. He summarizes the years when books with political content were something to hide, along with one’s identity as a leftist or a revolutionary. Through a small bookshelf, he recreates the self-censorship that he remembers from the years spent with his parents. The motivation behind this is also to hide the shame of being illiterate longer than usual because of the self-censorship present in the family.
