The Materiality of the Invisible approaches contemporary art as an activity that shares several characteristics of archaeology. Many artists probe the underlying layers of our social and political reality. They expose what is concealed and penetrate to other times. Like archaeologists, they make the invisible visible.

Van Eyck is a partner in the multi-year EU project NEARCH – New scenarios for a community-involved archaeology. For this project, the Van Eyck selected six international artists who each collaborated with two archaeological partners. The Materiality of the Invisible shows the results together with the work of 24 other artists and artist duo’s. The exhibition is organized by the Van Eyck in collaboration with Marres and Bureau Europa and spreads out over the three locations.

*The archaeologist Michael Shanks is Professor of Classics at Stanford University and a widely discussed author. He is noted for advancing new theoretical insights in archaeology
