At the initiative of Krien Clevis, teacher Artistic Reasearch at the Fine Arts departement of the MAFAD, currently a reasearch project named ‘Overgangszone’ is taking place.
The project, which also partly became section of the master course Polis, stimulates a number of recently graduated alumni of Fine Arts to team up with scientists who in different ways have a special relationship with the ENCI-quarry in Maastricht.
As everyone knows, this area has been in transition for some years now. In the coming years, it will change from an industrial area to a region that will get a whole new respect as a cultural landscape.
The teams consisting of young artists and scientists investigate how this transition takes place, bring it into image, and will organize public moments.
