Dutch Invertuals Academy is centered around this year’s theme: True Matter, an expression of the global shift from a careless to a caring attitude.
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 you 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.
Because participants join from all around the world, True Matter sheds a light on our local identities, but also gives us insight into what truly matters globally.
