Research Fellowships 2020-2021: Exhibit & Symposium

A symposium and exhibition by the research fellows 2020-2021


Fellows Exhibit is a Rietveld/Sandberg initiative to showcase the research results of the 16 artists that entered our Fellowship trajectory in 2020-2021. With the aim of facilitating and supporting artistic research projects by alumni, tutors and guests, each fellowship project is conducted in close collaboration with the departments of Sandberg Instituut and Rietveld Academie. With this, the programme fosters relationships between the educational programmes, research activities, and societal questions.

With the intention of developing a more specific research policy, Rietveld Academie and Sandberg Instituut have currently defined three fields of research: Artificial Intelligence, The City and Materiality. The establishment of three distinct research areas proves to be important for the development of our institute, art education as well as a broader societal context.

This symposium and exhibition features contributions by:

Amy Suo Wu, Nicola Baratto and Yiannis Mouravas, Marjan van Aubel, Derrais Carter, Quinsy Gario, Jeroen Kramer, Nina Glockner, David Bennewith, Noha Ramadan and Swani Vinton, Mo Veld and Mika Perlmutter, Oskar Johanson, Marie Ilse Bourlanges and Elena Khurtova.
