Students of the Rietveld Academie were participating in a project called the The Plastic Challenge. The Plastic Challenge wants to make us aware that plastic is a material that can be very well recycled and shouldn't go to waste. The students have been working with plastic materials that where collected over the last two weeks. On September 24 their works were presented to councillor Abdeluheb Choho at the Mahlerplein.

Sunday, 26th October 2014
2pm - 4pm
After two weeks (May 12 - May 22nd, 2014) of working in the Creative Quarter Ückendorf in Gelsenkirchen, more than 40 students and 8 teachers from Rietveld Fine Arts exhibited their works, the results of the very first edition of RietveldAcademieResidenzGelsenkirchen, which took place under the name: "Bochumer Straße Spricht".
These were inspired by the area's mining past, informed by the diverse social, urban and economic challenges which Gelsenkirchen currently faces, but also from the rich history and present time image of this place.
On the October 26th the Goethe Institut will host a presentation of the documentation of this project, along with a discussion.
Introduction: Yvonne Droge Vendel (Head of Rietveld Fine Arts, Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam).
- Dr. Volker Bandelow (Head of the office for cultural affairs, Gelsenkirchen): Bringing into discussion the role of arts, creative industries and cultural concepts in a former industrial, and now partly shrinking city, like Gelsenkirchen. How the local authorities and community can deal with the rather negative downwards spiral, or bend it into new possibilities. A view on cultural development strategies in the town and specifically for the Bochumer-Straße-Quarter.
- Dieter Blase (Consultant urban developer for „Bochumer Straße", Gelsenkirchen): Addressing the urban situation, problems, plans and strategies in the quarter Bochumer Straße, as part of the RuhrArea (Ruhrgebiet) -, a sociological and urbanistic gaze.
- Joost van Haaften (Professor at Rietveld Fine Arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam): Introducing the question of how higher education (HBO), provided by an Academy of Arts and Design, can contribute to addressing the problems and possibilities of present day society.
The presentation will be done in English.

Clay! A century of ceramics at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag
A century of ceramics at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy
8 November 2014 – 12 April 2015
Eccentric vases, a female body slowly revolving in a display cabinet, a depiction of Mr Yokoi (the Japanese soldier who didn’t discover that World War II had ended until 1972) and a captivating film showing a clay sculpture dissolving in water – just a few of the works on show in Clay! A century of ceramics at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. The exhibition focuses on the history of the ceramics department at the prestigious Amsterdam art school. It is a major retrospective featuring over 60 artists whose startling work fires the imagination and demonstrates just how thrilling ceramics can be. In a show of astonishing variety and frequent contrasts, teachers and students reveal their individual explorations of the potential of clay.
Five years ago, the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag staged a successful exhibition – Glas/s. Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam 1969-2009 – to mark the fortieth anniversary of the academy’s glass department. This time, the focus is on the almost hundred-year history of ceramics teaching. The exhibition and accompanying bilingual catalogue are the result of in-depth research by ceramics expert Marianne Heslenfeld. The ceramics department at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie is both the oldest and now the sole surviving example of such an autonomous teaching institution in the Netherlands. Its rich history stretches right back to 1917 (via predecessors of the present academy) and boasts a multitude of budding artists who went on to determine the face of Dutch ceramics in the twentieth century.

NO PLACE LIKE HOME
The idea of ‘Home’ is one that only be defined by distance, something that’s true both in space and in time. Our idea of a home might be nothing more than a cherished memory, and even though we always feel it flowing inside us, trying to define it is like catching a flame. In her first short, N’Etre, Olfa Ben Ali described her ‘’Childhood is like the air in a bubble of strawberry flavored bubble gum.”
With ‘’Sous les nuages des Rêves Désertiques, Olfa Ben Ali filmed the refugees, and their locations, from the 'we are here' action group over a two year period. In this poetic film she laces her personal history with the situation of every exile, while making the issue of current immigrants an universal question.
After these two shorts Olfa questions her role as an artist in the fabric of society and therefore she created an ‘avant garde’ online creative platform, StatelessTaste.com, for the refugees of the ‘we are here’ group to tell their own stories.
