KPN awards resident Roderick Hietbrink with fellowship

Dutch telecommunications provider KPN supports Rijksakademie's cause to 'develop talent at the highest level' by rewarding talented Dutch Rijksakademie residents with a fellowship.

This year KPN chose Roderick Hietbrink, who made a strong impression with his video work The Living Room.

Besides the fellowship, which is awarded on a yearly basis, KPN and Rijksakademie organise the KPN Kunstprix. Every odd year the Kunstprix is awarded to one of the longlist-applicants/candidates for the Prix de Rome.
