|DEAR RIETVELD ALUMNI|
|We hope you are all doing well.|
Although our world has totally changed we like to stay in touch. Worldwide people are working really hard to flatten the curve and we try to adapt to a new, surreal and uncertain situation. To inspire we collected some articles, platforms, old or new art works, open calls and some postponed events.
Please stay safe, stay connected and in good spirits.

|TODAY, HUSTLE AND BUSTLE RESEMBLES AN ENDANGERED SPECIES|
|by Yunting Zhang|
The episode made with the sudden at-home quarantine of COVID-19 has disrupted the original rhythm of Yunting’s life, which yet leaves the still life extremely unreal. Family members are trapped in the limited household space all day long regardless of the dawn or dusk. It supplies her a rare opportunity to re-examine the home life, care about getting along with family, and interact with surrounding things, and even her solitude in this private space.

|AMSTERDAM PRIJS VOOR DE KUNST|
|Deadline 13 April 2020|
|EVENTS / EXHIBITIONS / FESTIVALS|
Our priorities have drastically changed in the period of a few weeks. And in that revision of priorities a lot of work has been pushed aside, but we hope, not forgotten.
In order to give visibility to the Alumni involved in events / exhibitions / festivals and the work that has been put into these happenings we chose to share some postponed events that should have taken place.

|A DAILY PRACTICE|
|by Yael Davids|
The exhibition marks a unique moment in Davids’ career: she will be the first candidate to complete the three-year research trajectory leading to the title Creator Doctus (CrD). The programme, set up by the Gerrit Rietveld Academie culminates in a collection of artistic works or projects, such as the exhibition A Daily Practice, rather than a written thesis. Davids’ research, commissioned by the Van Abbemuseum, focuses on somatic learning and is inspired by the work of Moshé Feldenkrais (1904-1984).
