> About the idea that started Project Every Day A Drawing 2012 – 2014

Background information:
The Renaissance period was a turbulent century full of major changes that shook their time. Depletion of the power of the Catholic Church, a time of wars all over Europe,sexual repression was quite common. At the same time there were these dynamic developments. International trade was booming (globalization you might say), the development ofhumanism and science started, laying the base for our knowledge today.

Art started to remove itself from the influence of the Catholic church. (The authority responsible for commissioning assignments to painters, sculptors etc.)
In short, chaotic turbulent times.

Many cases are similar to the confusing time we live in. Again major changes redefine the world, both religious as well as in the area of ​​globalization.
The issue of sexual repression and its debates, and last but not least climate change.
Simultaneously with dynamic developments in science and technology.
