Rietveld Uncut

Resilient Bodies—Strategies and Practices for Fluid Embodiments


Between March 24-27 2021, Rietveld Uncut presents an exhibition with 26 projects by Rietveld students in an online environment specially created for the occasion. 

This year Studium Generale & Rietveld Uncut are focussing on different experiences and manifestations of the body and (dis)embodiments in art and life. Due to Covid-19, the quarantines and guidelines for physical distancing, we are not only dealing with (our) viral bodies, vulnerable bodies and lonely bodies; in attempts to continue life, we manifest ourselves nonstop behind our screens as virtual bodies and data bodies.

What are experimental and emancipating strategies and practices for fluid embodiments? How can we form resistant collective bodies without losing our own subjectivity and fleshy "matter"? How can we think about this from art practice and theory?
