Achim Kühn - Germany

From the series “steel library” – “The Captive book” 2009

Documents, papers and books that describe the movement of people, but are not tolerated by the respective policies have been around for centuries and are burned up today.

The blacksmith Achim Kühn has this abuse in their own way set an example. His book ideas come from the fire, to be born in the fire. The “captive book” to the troubles of men symbolize, to protect the freedom of thought.
