Product description

'On Jewellery' offers a comprehensive overview of the trends and role of contemporary international jewellery art from the 1960s to today, shown within the context of corresponding trends in art and society. This publication is dedicated to themes such as interdisciplinary collaboration, new means of presentation and contextualisation. It also incorporates photography and the relationships between jewellery and the body, jewellery and ornament and new interpretations of traditional technical skills. Furthermore it considers aspects such as terminology and strategies, positioning, prejudices and the significance of content with regard to jewellery. On this basis this publication offers a synopsis of what jewellery art is and what it can be. Its aim is to reveal the characteristics, language and potential of jewellery. A bibliography of the most important works of jewellery art, a directory of jewellery galleries, museums and educational institutions make On Jewellery a compact handbook of contemporary jewellery art. Artists featured include Pia Aleborg, Gijs Bakker, Melanie Bielenker, Manfred Bischoff, Helen Britton, Paul Derrez, Iris Eichenberg, Warwick Freeman, Otto Kunzli, Daniel Kruger, Yuka Oyama, Robert Smit, Annamaria Zanella and Christoph Zellweger.
