13:30 at the Rietveld Gym:

Erin Manning, Not at a Distance: On Touch, Synaesthesia and Other Ways of Knowing (lecture)
Are you considering applying, or just wondering what it’s like to study at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie? The OPEN DAY on Friday 26 January 2018 is the perfect moment to wander around our buildings and have a look at all departments, including the Preparatory Year, Orientation Year and DOGtime (part-time course).
Do join Gabriel Lester’s speculative lecture on how to survive on ones own artistic island. On 8 February at 12.30PM in the Gym of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie.
Studium Generale Rietveld Academie presents a four-days conference-festival guest curated by Karen Archey, Mark Paterson, Rizvana Bradley and Jack Halberstam, who will each inaugurate a discursive and performative programme on how the haptic – relating to or based on touch – is thought and experienced artistically, philosophically, and politically in life, art and design, and theory.
