Artist: John Leatham
Banned/Challenged Book: Manitou Fountains of the Deep
Reason for Banning: Censorship by omission
Excerpt from Artist’s Statement:As an investigative work of historical and contemporary non-fiction from its earliest research to its November 7th of 2012 publication and beyond, Manitou: Fountains of the Deep…has been challenged both directly and indirectly, but usually in an evasive or anonymous manner. The focus of this piece is an explicit response to a newly dominant book banning methodology. Censorship by omission.
