Young Writers on Invisible Labour

How might a statue look back on its career? Whose hands handled the wood before it was made into a cabinet? What can a jar of mustard tell us? Eighteen young Flemish and Dutch authors who attended deBuren’s residency programme in Paris have brought nineteenth-century artefacts from the Rijksmuseum to life. They have taken inspiration from the question: what do you see when you look at these objects with an eye for invisible labour?
