The starting point of this exhibition is the Carrying of the Cross by Pieter Brueghel the Younger. A seemingly religious subject that can also be interpreted as a critical commentary on the power structures and religious reality in Flanders around 1700. In the exhibition Brueghel and contemporaries: art as hidden resistance? the work of Pieter Brueghel the Younger is shown alongside other interpretations of the crucifixion by predecessors, contemporaries and followers.
