"We only move into the 21st century on the foundation of things that have been established long, long ago."
From Season 6 of "Art in the Twenty-First Century"
How do artists mine the past to explore the present? Why do some historical events shape the way we think today, and why have some been forgotten? In what ways do artists use their own histories to examine the human condition? In this episode, artists play with historical events, explore and expose commonly held assumptions about historic ‘truth’, and create narratives based on personal experiences.
