Out of Print Art Reception | Banned Books Week 2012
Seen as both a means to control ideologies and maintain social order, “Out of Print” seeks to recognize the subversive nature of censorship and to celebrate the printed page through rare books and book arts.
On display October 1st-5th, 2012. Gallery reception October 2nd, 2012 from 5-8 pm.
Since pen was first put to paper expressing ideas and views– groups were present to either restrict its circulation excluding lower social classes or banned simply for the control of knowledge, dictating morality. The censorship of books continues to this day where multiple groups and agencies prevent certain books from being read by the public.
