For the 2015 INBOX presentation, Wout Vercammen reissued his vividly-coloured silkscreen prints based on his original works from 1972. Orgasme-strijder [Orgasm Warrior] is part of a series of images made up of collected news items from various newspapers and magazines.  For the 2015 reissue, Vercammen placed what were once separate images on top of one another, creating a cohesiveness in terms of content and causing the images' internal discourse to be even more explicit. War, religion, the sexual revolution and the capitalist system are all addressed in Vercammen’s series.
