The photograph was originally commisioned by Nowy Teatr in Warsaw for a poster advertising a play directed by its artistic director Krzysztof Warlikowski. Libera refers to the history of photography, anthropology and colonialism to create an evocative portrait of the 'savage' Europeans - a photographic image of the future entitled just like Warlikowski's play.
