    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.
    The exhibition is organized by the Van Eyck in collaboration with Marres and Bureau Europa and spreads out over the three locations. More info here.
