Ronald Rietveld (Amsterdam): Hardcore Heritage

Hardcore Heritage represents a new way of thinking about monuments and cultural heritage. Through deliberate destruction, radical changes in con-text, and seemingly contradictory additions, a new field of tension arises  between present, past and future. 

Ronald Rietveld graduated in 2004 cum laude at the Amsterdam Academy of Arts. His working period during Prix de Rome 2006 at the Rijksakademie of Visual Arts in Amsterdam was the early beginning of RAAAF [Rietveld Architecture-Art-Affordances]. After winning the golden medal he founded the multidisciplinary studio together with his brother and Socrates Professor in Philosophy Erik Rietveld. 
Ronald & Erik work at the intersection of visual art, architecture and philosophy. “RAAAF’s site-specific artworks are materialized visions and explorations of possible new worlds. These interventions invite reflection and question practices, conventions and habits that people take for granted.”
With RAAAF Rietveld has won several awards, including the Prix de Rome 2006 and the European Prize of Architecture 2017. Their work has been published world-wide and exhibited and at leading contemporary art- and architecture biennales such as those of São Paulo, Istanbul, Chicago. Ronald was responsible for the Dutch contribution to the Venice Biennale 2010. In 2016 Ronald has been invited to become a member of the Society of Arts of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts & Sciences (KNAW).
