"LEGO bricks are a way to better understand the past"


LEGO bricks give us the unique possibility to recreate historical events in the way we imagine them. This is where our images of history and our understanding of events in the past are revealed. But images of the past are not rigid. On the contrary: it depends on the situation in which we remember, how we remember, and building a LEGO model is therefore a process of mapping this situation.
