Read the Masks. Tradition is Not Given (2009)

Long before the Zwarte Piet is Racisme campaign took off in the Netherlands, two artists attempted to stage a protest and exhibition in opposition to the racist Sinterklaas celebration.

Tradition is Not Given was still made, allowing an insight into their project and promoting a very critical perspective on this racist celebration.
