I have 2 layers with 1-1 polygon. The polygons are overlapping.

How do I calculate the area of the overlap using QGIS?

Made an example, they are transparent.

You can do an "Intersection".

Vector> Geoprocessing Tools> Intersection

Then identify the resulting layer, and it will have an area in the (Derived) stats.
