Afterglow for Blue by Lucía Vives (VAV – moving image)

Here, Blue and Gold are portrayed as fascinating heroes of daily life, connected by carrying each other’s wisdom teeth in their wallets. Afterglow for Blue is a celebration of Derek Jarman's personification of the colour in his film Blue (1993). 

‘Blue and Gold are eternally united. They have affinity in eternity.’ (Derek Jarman)

For the fourth consecutive time, the Rietveld Uncut team has worked towards an exhibition of these projects in the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, this year under the title Relating (to) Colour. Students investigate "colour" from different perspectives and meanings.

Due to government measures to control the coronavirus, the Rietveld Uncut exhibition and the Studium Generale conference week in the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam in March 2020 were cancelled. Participants were asked to create digital translation of their projects and share this with the online audience.
