Stepanovych’s 1st Amendment / Banned Books Awareness Project

Kick off September 25th 2010 in conjunction with the American Library Association Banned Books Week. Banned Books Week (BBW) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. Loosely modeled after a scene from George Orwell’s 1984  and drawing from the words of Orwell and Bradbury regarding censorship.  This instillation features a video of  46 of the Radcliffe Publishing Course Top 100 Novels of the 20th Century that have been the target of ban attempts. The scene is a representation of a world where censorship has “cleansed” society… dreary, dull, used, and without “life”
