5000 books out the window

Alicia Martin, a famous Spanish artist from Madrid, specialises in big artistic pieces which she does not exhibit in museums or galleries but in prominent locations in various cities. Recently she amazed the citizens of Madrid by exhibiting countless books being thrown out the window. 

This project was entitled "Biografies", which emphasises the fact that modern society and everyone on an individual level have stopped reading books. Books are disappearing, giving way to the internet.
