CCS Bard is an exhibition and research center dedicated to the study of art and exhibition practices from the 1960s to the present day. In order to make the actual production of art a more palpable part of the graduate program, the Center initiated an artist-in-residence program which allows for one or more artists to spend from a semester to a year at the CCS making new work and engaging with the program in other ways.
Radiant Matter is the first duo exhibition of work by Marjolijn Dijkman and Maarten Vanden Eynde.

After more than twenty-five years as Casco, Casco Projects, and finally Casco – Office for Art, Design and Theory, we are changing our name to Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons. The title heralds our new modus operandi, presented initially in the form of an exhibition that opens on 26 May 2017. With this change we aim to act on our political-aesthetical intentions and face their urgencies with “working for the commons” as the guiding imperative for all Casco operations.
