THE INVISIBLE COLLECTION
What if you wouldn’t be able to see art? Can you experience a painting in a different way? Transform your own living room into a museum in which you can experience the most beautiful works of art with your eyes closed through the Invisible Collection! The Invisible Collection is a collection of audio recordings in which art professionals describe their favorite visual works of art.
AND NOW YOU!
We need your help! In order to be able to share even more works of art, the Invisible Collection needs to be expanded. Marres gives away great prizes among participants, and you can easily do this at home.
There are two ways to participate:
- Listen to a recording of the Invisible Collection on our website, let your imagination run wild and visualize the work being described. You can do this by making a drawing, a clay sculpture, even ironing beads. We count on you to be creative! Share your creation by email with Ilse via firstname.lastname@example.org and have a chance to win great prizes!
- Leave your own story! Choose a work of art that impressed you greatly. Try to describe all your senses during this experience. You can record your description on your phone, tablet, laptop or computer. It is important that you are in a quiet environment during your recording, to avoid noise. Send your fragment to Ilse via email@example.com and win great prices!
Everyone can participate, we call on you to share this collection with family and friends. In this way, we make art available for each other! We are looking forward to your creations and recordings, have fun!

The Invisible Collection is an ongoing project to which new recordings are constantly added. Marres extends the project to its audience, approaching different groups to complement the collection with descriptions of students, elderly people, people with a migration background and professionals from different disciplines.
