Rietveld in de Oude Kerk: wonder & Wander

Rietveld in de Oude Kerk 2015

April 10 - May 3

Opening April 10
5pm - 8pm

The Oude Kerk is the oldest church in Amsterdam, situated in the Red Light District. Rietveld in de Oude Kerk has been a recurring event for many years, and gives students the opportunity to present their work on a monumental location. For the about 50 selected students it is one of the first experiences with creating an exhibition, for visitors it is an unique insight into the world of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and the Oude Kerk. Each year a commission decides on a theme for the exhibition. For 2015 the theme will be 'wonder & Wander'.

With 'wonder & Wander' more than 50 students present performances, installations, videos and sculptures in the church in Amsterdam between April 10 and May 3, 2015 .

This year the students have the interior of the church and the many or (not) present objects as a starting point for their work. During the 'beeldenstorm' much of the Catholic imagery has disappeared from the Oude Kerk. Some projects involve reconstructing now missing elements, while others work and respond to the situation. All this from a contemporary perspective.

As a guide to the exhibition, a collection of essays is published, written by students of the department Beeld & Taal .
