Gerrit Rietveld Academie

Alumni Now is a series of interviews with Gerrit Rietveld Academie alumni. Looking back on their studies, they consider the unforeseen effects the Academie may have had on their life, their work, their values, and viewpoints, offering multifaceted prospects to new students or anyone interested in the potential reverberations of an art school such as the Gerrit Rietveld Academie.

Ornamental Rest
With alumni Elina Birkehag,  Klara Graah, Rosita Kær and Asefeh Tayebani

The ornamental can be the unpredictable details of work. Both those details which blur the borders where the utility of the made ends and its form or decoration begins, and also a way of embracing what might usually be dismissed as flaws, errors, or tryouts.

Last Bus Home
With Inge van Genuchten

The artists, Lil Cahill, Jojo and Inge van Genuchten collaboratively explore the stationary condition of the surface and vibrations of existence. If one were to give up a fixed position and abandon oneself to the movement, the question arises if, and how we would develop new modes of existence; an ability to coexist.
