Dutch Invertuals Academy is centered around the theme True Matter, an expression of the global shift from a careless to a caring attitude.
“Dutch Invertuals Academy made me more aware and gave me time to see and interpret my surroundings”
Steeven – Dutch Invertuals
Academy Participant 2020
We are moving away from a careless, money-driven time of ‘hunting,’ towards a time of ‘caring’ with attention focused on our (local) environment.
True Matter challenges you to work with raw materials from your local context. Play with your surroundings, not only in terms of resources, but also in terms of techniques, craftmanship, and traditions. You will collect, build, redefine, combine, and experiment. True Matter sheds a light on our local identities, and gives us insight into what truly matters.
