Koenraad Dedobbeleer’s 2019 show “Kunststoff, Gallery of Material Culture” at Wiels brought together 40 ‘living’ artworks to reflect upon Western culture, art history, and mythology. TLmag spoke with the Brussels-based artist about the exhibition and his practice.
Artistic and scientific practices come together in these extended pages of TLmag’s 10th anniversary edition. More than ever, archaeologists are operating in sensitive areas and in territories that have become increasingly difficult to access. By collaborating with contemporary artists and designers, modern archaeology is openening up to other disciplines – transforming itself into a “platform of invention”.
