Rollins worked in collaboration with teenagers from the Bronx, who he taught in after-school workshops, under the name ‘Kids of Survival’. Many of their works engaged directly with classic works of literature. Here the pages of George Orwell’s Animal Farm provide a painting surface, upon which Orwell’s political allegory has been updated with animals representing the world leaders of the time.
