The Materiality of the Invisible

@ Jan Van Eyck Academie

Academieplein 1 Maastricht, The Netherlands


In the framework of the exhibition The Materiality of the Invisible, Femke has been invited together with Eyal Weizman to dig deeper into the topic of the relationship of objects – and their devised narratives – to the body and social, political, technological or cultural power-structures, a recurring theme in the exhibition.

Eyal Weizman reveals the materiality of the immaterial narrative, blurring the distinction between objects and subjects. Femke will talk about the industry of bio-medical imaging, digging through software environments that interface with CT, MRI and PET-scans.
