Our primary goal for this pupil target group is to discover a world that is comprehensible to them, since they also live in a society that is underpinned by such themes as social engagement, economics and the cultural context. Precisely the same applied in 17th-century Antwerp, although life was perceived in a different way then.
Based on their own experiences, pupils can discover parallels and differences, look for advantages and disadvantages and construct a critical dialogue on past and present solutions. The art works in the Snijders&Rockox House provide ample material to act as a starting point for discovery, with secular iconography and religious imagery, as well as portraits and scenes from nature.
