Rietveld Review(ed) 2021

Rietveld Review(ed) is part of the Graduation Show’s peripheral programming. An independent, external committee was asked to reflect on the Graduation Show as a whole and to signal current tendencies and themes within the exhibition. The committee was also asked to select a number of projects by graduating students that support these observations. The reflections and observations are processed by the Rietveld Academie into this reflection report. The report also includes the observations of the thesis committee.  More information and PDF.
