Kuwaiti artist creates graveyard for books to protest government’s literature ban

A Kuwaiti artist has created a cemetery of books to protest the government’s ban on thousands of pieces of literature in recent years.

The art installation itself, named “A Cemetery of Banned Books”, consisted of more than 200 headstones and was erected close to the location for Kuwait’s annual book fair. It was removed by authorities several hours later.
