MISS READ: The Berlin Art Book Fair

The Rietveld Shop pops up during special events such as the Graduation Show, the Open Day and occasionally outside the academy walls, for instance at the Beurs van Bijzondere Uitgevers (Fair for Extraordinary Publishing Houses) in pop venue Paradiso, Amsterdam. This is the first time the Rietveld Shop travels abroad.

The Shop presents and sells publications from individual students and alumni from different departments, including collaborative, cross-disciplinary projects initiated by students such as snoisiv and SAUCE magazine. The last one is a brand new magazine serving as an outlet for projects made by Rietveld students. With its roots in fashion, it has established a new platform offering an explosive mix of editorials, illustrations, collages, animations, etc. The first edition “The Zoo” features contributions from various departments: Photography, Graphic Design, Fashion, VAV - moving image and designLAB.

Besides SAUCE magazine, The Rietveld Shop will bring a selection of zines, glossies, theses and books. Mostly small editions, occasionally handmade, in all kind of formats and printed on a great variety of paper types. From super cheap to excessively expensive, but always very exclusive. The students/alumni receive 100% of the revenue.
