Intervention # 16 Lonnie van Brummelen & Siebren de Haan - The Embed and the Shadow of the Horse

The artistic duo Lonnie van Brummelen & Siebren de Haan were exhibiting a new work in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. The title ‘The Embed and the Shadow of the Horse’ links a sixteenth-century foreign intervention in Tunis to other military operations, including the current action in Afghanistan.

In 'The Embed and the Shadow of the Horse', Van Brummelen & De Haan investigated representations of historical and present-day interventions. Using a  two-part 16mm film of sixteenth-century tapestries and the cartoons for them, some historical prints from the collections in the museum and the Royal Library, and a 16mm film based on current newspaper reports, the artists examined how the image of the ’other side’ is constructed, reproduced and distributed.
