During the last six years, the photographer Joan Fontcuberta (Barcelona, 1955) has visited libraries and archives throughout Europe and North America and gathered together images of censured text from different epochs and authors –Desiderius Erasmus, Fernando de Rojas, Francisco de Quevedo, among others. Based on this series of images, Joan Fontcuberta presents “Deletrix”, an artistic project (an exhibition and an artist book) on censorship with the direct involvement of PEN Catalán. Deletrix includes a series of images by the photographer together with texts in which writers of international renown reflect on censorship. This project, driven by PEN Catalán aspires to become a literary and artistic benchmark volume on censorship.
