THE INCINERATOR

The work highlights the danger of banning books by retrieving the book burning scene by the Nazis, which was followed by the burning of millions of people in the holocaust, as the German poet Henrik Hein said "where books are burned, people will burn" more than 80 years earlier. The installation represents an incinerator that similar to the one used by the Nazis in burning books. While the wooden box represents the destiny of the banned books locally. A video accompanied the installation shows footages of the crimes of burning books by the Nazis fallowed by the quote of the German poet as a prelude to the recipient.
