Style is Forbidden! Works by 68 alumni of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie.
Edited by Frans Oosterhof, a former professor at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, invited ex-students to make individual and autonomous contributions in printed form. This artists’ publication brings together the eclectic and surprising nature of these contributions, each emphasizing the different artistic practices that these artists have today.

However varied the works of the artists are in technique or form, from literary to visual, from flat to three-dimensional, from still to moving, these are all ‘mediumistic' approaches. To put it more specifically, ‘a drawing of a landscape not only shows a landscape, but more particularly says “I am a mediated landscape, a translation.” Each contribution represents something and at the same time refers to itself – its construction, method, and history of creation’.

 With texts by Frans Oosterhof, Dirk van Weelden, and Ben Zegers.
