Events — 25 Mar until 1 Jun 2020

Due to government measures to control the coronavirus, the Rietveld Uncut exhibition and the Studium Generale conference week in the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam in March 2020 were cancelled. To give an idea what students and departments have been working on, participants were asked to create digital translation of their projects and share this with the online audience.

ABOUT RIETVELD UNCUT

Rietveld Uncut is one of the three annual presentation moments of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie since 2009. Rietveld Uncut has been collaborating with Studium Generale Rietveld Academie since 2014; departments and individual students develop projects in relation to the theoretical frameworks of Studium Generale Rietveld Academie.

Within Rietveld Uncut, the process of creating work, contact with the public outside the academy and the relationship to Studium Generale's subjects that change every year play a substantive role.

This collaboration leads to a simultaneous conference week and exhibition, where making and thinking come together.

The students of the Rietveld Academie and the curators of Rietveld Uncut managed to quickly turn offline into online. We believe it is a great statement that, as a result, their work has nevertheless been given a platform. With current events, the medium shifts for once.

RIETVELD UNCUT 2020

For the fourth consecutive time, the Rietveld Uncut team has worked towards an exhibition of these projects in the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, this year under the title Relating (to) Colour.

Students investigate "colour" from different perspectives and meanings. Colour structures our daily life and our actions, our relationships with others and the spaces in which we live. Within different historical and cultural contexts, however, colours have very different symbolic, psychological, material, and socio-political meanings.

In total, 121 students worked on 28 departmental projects and individual proposals guided by (guest) teachers and Rietveld Uncut curators Tomas Adolfs & Tarja Szaraniec.
