The origin of the project is entwined with the penchant to see art as a self-evident part of society. I like to imagine that P.P. Rubens' studio embodied this quality of being totally embedded in its era. When one looks at Rubens' monumental paintings as if it were movie posters, you might see them coming alive perhaps somewhat like their contemporaries did. The below event- teaser plays around ways of perception and historical and cultural representation and contexts by combining 'Peace and War' from Rubens and a group portrait of the founding members of the African National Congress.
