The first Parthenon would have been created by Marta Minuhin 34 years ago in Buenos Aires. Then the artist dedicated her project to the fall of the military dictatorship in her native country. The "bricks" for the project were books banned by the junta. Not one book went missing - after the end of the exposition, the building was laid on the ground with the help of construction equipment, and visitors could take the books themselves.

The project “Book Parthenon” was repeated by the Polish curator of the exhibition, Adam Shimchik, co-founder of the Warsaw gallery Foxal, in the framework of the 14th Papers. A significant place on the “Document” is devoted to discussions about migration and borders, including personal stories of migrants and refugees, told in the first person.
