Until the twentieth century, the prohibition of books was a widespread form of censorship and served primarily to preserve the existing balance of power. In some countries it is still common for the government to ban certain literature. For the most parts, these books contain either political, educational or religious subjects which were deemed dangerous. The suppression of these critically viewed books caused a cultural loss.
We have gathered a selection of controversial works for you. All titles contain a brief commentary on their banishment.
You will find the current exhibition in the library's information area (behind the search and find desk) from Thursday, 12 January 2023.
Here you can find the current exhibition in HSGswisscovery.
