The Gerrit Rietveld Academie concludes presenting awards to graduates and instead invites a committee to signal tendencies and themes in the graduation show. To reflect on this change, Andrea and Arif speak to members of the committee and the academy as well as a recent graduate. The guests are: Joram Kraaijeveld, Marina Otero Verzier, Katja Mater, Mica Pan and Tomas Adolfs.
Featuring an excerpt of a work by graduate Shifra Osorio Whewell.
