The Word Defiant! at Blickling

The Word Defiant! was an exciting temporary art installation at Blickling in 2018 that revealed stories of books that had been banned, burned, drowned, superseded, redacted, neglected and those that remained defiant.

To mark the 70th anniversary of Peckover House coming into the care of the National Trust in 2018, artists Aid & Abet, sought to re-imagine the extensive collection that once filled this house.
