Melle Smets (1975) studied OK5/art and public space at ArtEZ (NL). As an “archaeologist of the present” Smets explores and interprets society by organising expeditions to contemporary landscapes. The expeditions find their reflection in visual art projects, lectures, publications and workshops. Smets is the founder of Stichting Aardschap and is currently affiliated to the Sandberg Institute, where he heads the temporary Master’s programme, The System D Academy.
