Studium Generale Rietveld Academie is an extensive theoretical program of the Rietveld Academie. This year, the theme is Oceanic Imaginaries. Based on this theme, students have developed projects that are exhibited in the Rietveld Uncut exhibition. This presentation takes place simultaneously with the concluding conference festival. Making and thinking come together during masterclasses, projects and performances.

The oceans are conceived as entities that feel, remember and connect. In an ecological sense, they are critical zones that demand a shift in our thinking and actions. They are places that harbour suppressed stories of transatlantic trade in enslaved people and boat refugees on the Mediterranean. But the oceans can also be experienced as spaces of transformation and liberation in which new identities and relationships emerge.

Studium Generale conference festival 

The four-day conference is a collaboration of Studium Generale curator Jorinde Seijdel with guest curators Stefanie Hessler, Natasha Ginwala & Michelangelo Corsaro, Erika Balsom and Charl Landvreugd. There will be presentations, conversations, screenings and performances by artists, writers, activists and theorists, including Yasmine Attoumane, Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor, Elizabeth DeLoughrey, Köken Ergun, Hira Nabi, Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Josèfa Ntjam, Joy Mariama Smith and Tarek Lakhrissi.
