The exhibition Flash-Back, Works: 1982-2012, presented simultaneously with the Golden Children, 16th-19th Century European Portraits exhibition, allowed insight into different aspects of the couple, not only as collectors but also as artists, highlighting 30 years of creativity.

The catalogue presents individual early works of Yannick Vu and Ben Jakober, together with their collaborative works beginning from 1993. As Flash-Back allows us to contemplate and understand the art of Vu and Jakober individually, it also enables us to recognize within the collaborative works a third artist, and appreciate a process engendered by an interaction of different sentivities in the works created.
