A century of ceramics at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie
8 November 2014 – 12 April 2015
Eccentric vases, a female body slowly revolving in a display cabinet, a depiction of Mr Yokoi (the Japanese soldier who didn’t discover that World War II had ended until 1972) and a captivating film showing a clay sculpture dissolving in water – just a few of the works on show in Clay! A century of ceramics at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. The exhibition focuses on the history of the ceramics department at the prestigious Amsterdam art school. It is a major retrospective featuring over 60 artists whose startling work fires the imagination and demonstrates just how thrilling ceramics can be. In a show of astonishing variety and frequent contrasts, teachers and students reveal their individual explorations of the potential of clay.
Five years ago, the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag staged a successful exhibition – Glas/s. Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam 1969-2009 – to mark the fortieth anniversary of the academy’s glass department. This time, the focus is on the almost hundred-year history of ceramics teaching. The exhibition and accompanying bilingual catalogue are the result of in-depth research by ceramics expert Marianne Heslenfeld. The ceramics department at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie is both the oldest and now the sole surviving example of such an autonomous teaching institution in the Netherlands. Its rich history stretches right back to 1917 (via predecessors of the present academy) and boasts a multitude of budding artists who went on to determine the face of Dutch ceramics in the twentieth century.

NO PLACE LIKE HOME
The idea of ‘Home’ is one that only be defined by distance, something that’s true both in space and in time. Our idea of a home might be nothing more than a cherished memory, and even though we always feel it flowing inside us, trying to define it is like catching a flame. In her first short, N’Etre, Olfa Ben Ali described her ‘’Childhood is like the air in a bubble of strawberry flavored bubble gum.”
With ‘’Sous les nuages des Rêves Désertiques, Olfa Ben Ali filmed the refugees, and their locations, from the 'we are here' action group over a two year period. In this poetic film she laces her personal history with the situation of every exile, while making the issue of current immigrants an universal question.
After these two shorts Olfa questions her role as an artist in the fabric of society and therefore she created an ‘avant garde’ online creative platform, StatelessTaste.com, for the refugees of the ‘we are here’ group to tell their own stories.
