Open Call: RietveldTV coordinator

We are looking for a Rietveld alum to take on the role of RietveldTV coordinator for the academic year 2023-2024. The coordinator and 4 students will form a curatorial team that will decide on a overall theme, invite alumni to make 8 RietveldTV episodes and organise 2 public programmes during that year.

Approximately 10 seasons of RietveldTV 

RietveldTV started as a project by Gijs Muller as part of the Library, to turn the library into a multimediaLAB. He invited Kuno Terwindt as RietveldTV’s first editor in chief. Kuno discovered hidden gems in the archive that was mainly built up by the VAV - moving image department. He turned these gems into a TV show for the world to see.

In 2011 Rogier Roeters became editor in chief. He changed the concept of RietveldTV and made portraits of students and alumni, to show the diversity of what happens during and after a studies at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. 

Since September 2014 Marieke Coppens is RietveldTV’s creative director. Within her concept, showing the diversity of what could happen after the Gerrit Rietveld Academie is still an important selection motive. She now invites an alumnus to use the audiovisual 12 minutes as a framework for the development of a new work, by being RietveldTV’s editor in chief for once in a lifetime.
