The focus of Shubigi Rao’s ongoing Pulp project is the history of book destruction, censorship, and repression, and the book as a symbol of resistance. She travels across the world, filming collections, libraries, archives and subjects that have served as historical flashpoints.

This second volume expands on the entangled issues and the complex histories of her encounters.

Combining fragments, ephemera and anecdotes, Rao creates an absorbing and powerful composite of the conjoined literary and violent trajectories of our species.
