Each year students from the final year present themselves to the public during Rietvelds Graduation Show.
Our academy is transformed in one big exposition space and shows works of students from Textile(TxT), Fashion, Photography, Image & Language, Glass, Ceramics, Graphic Design, Architectural Design, Fine Arts, Interaction Design-Unstable Media, VAV and designLAB.
In 2011 approximately 200 students graduated from several departments.
On July 6th at 4 pm Professor. Dr. Robbert Dijkgraaf, President of the KNAW, University Professor, as well as former Rietveld student officially opened the exhibition.
Every year the Rietveld Academie shows an overview of the endexam work in the so called 'Online Catalogue'.
During the Graduation Show this catalogue will be filled up with endexam work. Students of the department Photography are asked to photographe the work during the exposition. The endexam students also have the possiblity to put work online themselve.
Tanguy Wermelinger and Martino Morandi, both students of Graphic Design, designed all the posters by using an 'interactive' Postermachine. Students can bring up there images and the machine creates big graduation posters of it. They also developped a video linking system, where students can upload a video, which inspired them. These are the little red squares on the hompage
