During RijksakademieOPEN 2017, forty-five emerging artists will present the results of one year research, experimentation and production. Visitors are given an opportunity to discover trends in the visual arts and get to know artists whose work they will later come across in collections, exhibitions and biennials worldwide.

What? NA – Christian Boltanski

A radical, site-specific exhibition by Christian Boltanski (France, 1944), one of the world’s foremost artists, whose oeuvre deals with the way we remember and commemorate. In a memory-filled space like the Oude Kerk, with its eight centuries of history and 2,200 memorial stones, his work is more than relevant. The artist presents more than sixty tombs as beacons for the hereafter, thereby asking visitors life-related questions.
