Researchlabs 2021: Gerrit Rietveld Academie - This Must Be the Place

Gerrit Rietveld Academie: Resilient Bodies

The topic of Resilient Bodies has been taken as a starting point to develop a variety of experimental films and one performance in the context of this year’s Research Lab.

poster Researchlabs 2021: Gerrit Rietveld Academie: Resilient Bodies

In a resilient way, bodies have become more and more precious through COVID-19, where quarantines and measures for physical distancing dictate our behaviour and places the body in a more remote position. In the diversity of works shown in the program of VAV-moving image, each student found their own emphasis relating to this topic.

This domain is explored within a wide range by the following students: Milli Rose Dobree, Morgane Billuart, Luca Heydt, Zep Nieuwenhuijs, Sidsel Mehlsen, Josefina Gilardi, Lucia Vivés, Ilona Jacoba Westrik, Anna Tamm, Katya Vogel, Jiyan Düyü, Emma Claire Sardoni, Talisa Harjono, Tobias Niemeyer.

Guided by Martin Grootenboer, Margriet Kruyver, Anja Masling, Mariken Overdijk.

With many thanks to the team of VAV – moving image teachers and technical staff.
