Gerrit Rietveld Academie
The Gerrit Rietveld Academie is a university of applied sciences for Fine Arts and Design. We offer one Bachelor's degree programme and four Master's programmes. From academic year 2014-2015 the Academie will be offering the Bachelor's degree programme Art & Design (formerly the two programmes Fine Arts and Design). This combination expresses our vision concerning art education in which autonomous and applied art form a single entity. This degree programme has twelve specialisations. All students follow a general first year (the Basicyear) and then choose one of these specialisations for in-depth study in the following three years. The Rietveld Academie also offers a part-time Bachelor's programme. The basis year of the part-time Bachelor's programme lasts two years and is followed by three years of in-depth study. Read More

Every month, The One Minutes puts out a new series of one-minute films that investigate how we perceive and engage with moving image. Each month, a different artist is asked to put together a new series as a guest curator.
The One Minutes Series of June is curated by Dick Verdult / Dick El Demasiado and is called Colón: ¿Culo o Conquista?
By way of The One Minutes, Dick Verdult had a message sent to anthropologists, artists and his Latin American followers, inviting them to make short films in the theme of Colón: ¿Culo o Conquista? Colón is the Spanish name for Columbus; the title can be interpreted as Colon: ass or conquest?
The series premieres at Manifesta, Amsterdam (NL) 13 June 6.30pm.

From Wednesday June 1, the local radio and tv broadcast SALTO will be broadcasting videos and films on a weekly basis, made by students of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. The new programme Rietveld@SALTO will feature work made by students from various departments.
SALTO is constantly looking for new collaborations and initiatives within the city that connect with a younger audience. The Gerrit Rietveld Academie is happy to collaborate with SALTO because it offers its students a platform to show their work to a broader audience in a very approachable way. Within this collaboration, students get the opportunity to develop their talent, to experiment and to approach the audiovisual medium in their own way. Rietveld@SALTO fits well within the academy's aim to connect students to the field of practice during their studies.
SALTO 1 will broadcast the first episode of Rietveld@SALTO at 10PM. The episode will feature work from a.o. VAV - Moving Image, Photography, Fine Arts and Inter-Architecture students. The episode has a rerun on Thursday 10.30PM and is available on demand on salto.nl.

"J'ai ma petite idée is the title of my bachelor thesis, which I wrote about the difficulty of finding words that could go along my visual work.
Through a series of 17 short essays, I depict the questions and struggle I encounter when it comes to translate a very sensorial experience into words."
