Friday 24 March, Uncut was part of Studium Generale's annual conference festival ‘ What is Happening to Our Brain? Art & Life in Times of Cognitive Automation' in Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
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 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 programs leads to a simultaneous conference week and exhibition, in which ‘the making and the thinking’ comes together
