A performance by Jaap Blonk
Introduction hub~bub, news from Rietveld Uncut, a Beam Club sneak preview, and an in-depth Reading Group introduction to Mladen Dolar's book A Voice and Nothing More by Clare Butcher.
Marianna Maruyama (1980, California) is an artist based in the Netherlands (where she moved after living in Japan). Through writing, audio recording, drawing and play, she looks for ways that sound and movement facilitate an understanding of position. Orientation and voice, specifically loss of position as it relates to loss of voice are dominant themes in her practice.
Jaap Blonk (1953, Woerden) performs an on-the-spot choice from his huge repertoire: sound poetry and voice pieces from the tradition (from Hugo Ball to John Cage), and from his own work (experimental texts, phonetic etudes, invented languages, improvisations).

is an annual joint presentation by the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. Within the Rietveld the process of making, from concept to work, is an important element throughout the whole study. This process often stays invisible to the outside world; Rietveld Uncut aims to shed a light on this unique, dynamic and experimental part of the academy and reveals this process to the public. Departments and individual students contribute to Rietveld Uncut with projects evolving around a collective content, topic or title.
STUDIUM GENERALE RIETVELD ACADEMIE
is a rambling theory program that addresses students and faculty across all departments and disciplines at the academy, as well as the general public. It wants to understand how art and design are entangled with other domains (from the personal to the political, from the vernacular to the academic), how 'now' is linked with past and future, 'here' with 'elsewhere'. Studium Generale invites you to join it's annually settled, slightly unruly, but always relevant research trajectories where knowledge, imagination and reflection are put to work together in a critical and unorthodox way.
