The worlds of photography and archaeology meet in Nimac’s upcoming exhibition opening in which a group of artists have examined whether the two fields can interlink, their similarities and differences.

The works are based on the understanding that archaeology is a field of inquiry that directly deals with the study of objects/artefacts, primarily as a means of providing coherent ideas for the interpretation of the past.

But curators explain that theories dating from the late 1970s led to a still relevant widespread critical discussion about archaeology’s failings in “fully understanding and embracing the social and political dimensions of objects, their multifaceted relationship to history and human societies, as well as the proliferation of competing narratives.”
