Rietveld Uncut is an annual presentation of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. Within the Rietveld the process, from concept to work, is an important element through out the full study. Rietveld Uncut sheds a light on this part of the study with a presentation of projects outside the academy walls. From 2009 onwards Rietveld Uncut presentations have led to projects in which the experiment, contact with an external audience and a close relation the subject have been of importance. Since 2009 the curators of Rietveld Uncut are Tarja Szaraniec and Tomas Adolfs.

Since 2014 Rietveld Uncut teams up with Studium Generale; departments and individual students develop projects in relation to the theoretic framework of Studium Generale. The collaboration of these programmes leads to a simultaneous conference week and exhibition, in which ‘the making and the thinking’ comes together.
