Several curators of the most important archaeological and historical museums in the Euregio have made this selection. Not only the most beautiful or valuable items, but also the most puzzling and mysterious objects. Objects of which, until today, nobody knows where they came from or what their purpose was.
This exhibition containing highlights and mysteries from the Euregional archaeological past takes place alongside the major international archeology congress organized in Maastricht by the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA) in early September.
The exhibition will be opened until the National Archaeology Days on October 13, 14 and 15.
‘PIONEERS’ is a thematic exhibition that deals with the fascination for discovering, excavating and showing what is hidden. The notion of visibility is simultaneously used as a vehicle to make ‘the hidden’ tangible and perceptible. The exhibition takes place at the ‘ARCHIEF’/ ‘Regionaal Historisch Centrum Limburg’, in collaboration with the Province of Limburg (Ad Himmelreich, conservator) and Van Eyck Academy in Maastricht. ‘PIONEERS’ is curated by Krien Clevis.
‘TRANSITION ZONE’ is an art and research project in the ENCI area in Maastricht, in which artists search for the qualities of an old, multi-layered location. 12 artists research the hidden notions of ‘place’, which can be applied to the on-going transformation process of the ENCI quarry. They do so in close collaboration with parties involved in the transformation process. The results of the artistic research will be presented at EAA Maastricht. An example of the results will be presented in the ENCI quarry on a special public event on September 3rd.
