Token of friendship

Two students of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam arrived Tuesday at the RKD with a gift to honour our friendship. To underscore this friendship they cycled on a tandem bicycle from Amsterdam to The Hague. Together with general manager Chris Stolwijk fourth year student Line broke a token in two of which one half will remain with the RKD - Netherlands Institute for art History and the other will go back to the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. The archives of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie are located at the RKD and we hope this gesture will encourage many students of the Academie to use these archives. Together with the Academie RKD has disclosed more than 50 metre of archive of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in the last years.
