(...) It matters what stories tell stories. It matters what thoughts think thoughts. It matters what worlds make worlds (...)” – Donna Haraway

This year, you are invited to ‘take a walk on the wild side’ and enter a space beyond current systems and structures of rule; to regard ‘fabulation’ – fabricating the real, or speculative fiction – as both an artistic, social and political capacity to produce or uncover visions, stories and histories that are radically discontinuous from official and dominant narratives about our lives and our living together. The effect of this on our consciousness and imaginations may turn out to be very real or liberating.

Rietveld Uncut is an annual joint presentation by the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. Within the Rietveld the process of making, from concept to work, is an important element throughout the whole study. This process often stays invisible to the outside world; Rietveld Uncut aims to shed a light on this unique, dynamic and experimental part of the academy and reveals this process to the public. This tenth edition of Rietveld Uncut, taking place for the third time at the Stedelijk Museum, shows the ambition of the art academy and the museum to collaborate more closely when it concerns experimentation and young talent.

The Rietveld Uncut exhibition features projects by departments and students in relation to the theoretic framework of Studium Generale, Take a Walk on the Wild Side | Fabulating Alternative Imaginaries in Art & Life.

Participating departments of the exhibition are Architectural Design, designLAB, Fashion, Graphic Design, TXT (Textile), Ceramics, The Large Glass, Beeld en Taal, Photography, VAV-moving image.


Stedelijk Stage-it is a category within our program with performances and interventions in the field of music, performance, dance, theater, film and opera. This evening offers opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations in the field of performing arts, festivals and art education.


Rietveld Uncut is curated by Tarja Szaraniec and Tomas Adolfs (Gerrit Rietveld Academie). Thanks to all the participating artists and departments and guest. More information about the artists and departments can be found here.
