About—Studium Generale Rietveld Academie
Studium Generale Rietveld Academie

Studium Generale is the Rietveld’s extensive transdisciplinary theory program that addresses students and faculty at all departments of the academy as well as the general public. This year, by exploring the potentialities of ecological worldviews, old and new, through theory and art, ‘Where Are We Going, Walt Whitman?’ seeks to accelerate, accumulate, animate and activate our poetical and political understanding of the world. To this aim Gabriëlle Schleijpen, Head of Studium Generale Rietveld Academie invited Anselm Franke, Binna Choi, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev as well as Natasha Ginwala & Vivian Ziherl to each inaugurate a discursive and performative program of one day. In their scintillating company plus that of the many great artists, poets, writers, thinkers, activists and musicians they’ve teamed up with, the Gerrit Rietveld Academie will embark on an energetic 4 day – long voyage.
