Klimt02: an initiative in the world of Jewellery today
Knowledge and Creation
Selection and Quality
We are a website that offers an environment of knowledge, information, debate
and exchange within the context of contemporary jewellery.
> SERVICE and FUNCTION
By becoming familiar with Klimt02 you will gain knowledge and further ability to assess and recognise creativity. Klimt02 specifically presents the creations that exist within the world of contemporary jewellery. This is our main service and at the same time our reason for being involved in the development of this area.
Our project is like a circle that converts knowledge into emotion. Our range of art, which becomes part of the real and contemporary everyday-live, will tempt you.
Promoting the acquisition of this kind of work is our way of following that circle. This generates a feedback state where the artist and his or her creation, knowledge and emotions have the possibility of being expressed and used. Therefore creativity and art are profitable, in both a spiritual and economical manner.
Trough this careful and considerate selection, Klimt02 attempts to explain this interdisciplinary synthesis.
In assessing Klimt02’s work during its first years, we now see the need for improvement within the following areas:
_The consolidation of Klimt02 as an international reference centre
_The use of Klimt02 in order to firmly consolidate Art-Jewellery within the world of the Arts, allowing it to become a daily element in our lives
_The assertion and expansion of Klimt02’s net of experts, co-workers and users
_The establishment of a functional dynamic between the academic and professional sectors
We are the ideal vehicle for the needs of public and private bodies interested in developing their socio-cultural context.
1_ General objective: from information to knowledge
Our initial intention with Klimt02 was to create a space where we could show the work of contemporary artists, what it generates and anything associated with this subject. Having the knowledge to inform and being informed to know. We wanted to set up a place where information could be attained, seen, contributed, consulted or swapped, so this became the starting point of this project. By working with global contemporary jewellery experts, Klimt02 is able to offer a selection based on very specific artistic principles and fill up a once empty space relating to this subject.
2_ Content’s objective: creation is intrinsically transversal
We understand that contemporary jewellery is an artistic discipline, where the works of art contain concepts and messages, and that the value of the materials used is considered secondary. Jewellery is an artistic discipline equal to any other yet at the same time reflects other art forms.
Klimt02 treats Jewellery as art and representation, giving special emphasis to the idea that creativity is truly and undoubtedly transversal.
3_Objective of universality: local / global
As well as keeping the world informed about what is happening in our country in relation to Contemporary Jewellery, we are also showing and sharing international work: the dimension is global. Our selection of artists are well established within the international context of creativity. The project is developed from Barcelona and Catalonia’s perspective but extends to an international community.
4_ Network objective: creation of knowledge nets and network
An international network of specialised co-operators, who will form a working team around Klimt02, is being created. By way of our forum, where information is dispersed and collected, we have set up a communication reference area to debate jewellery.
5_ Formal objective: present, accessibility and new technologies
In order to achieve easy accessibility we have chosen the format of a website, which allows you as users an easy access from any online device. Through this platform, it is easy to send and share information, giving you not only a fast, current and up to date communication tool, but also the possibility to handle, store, dispose-of or offer to others a range of information of the best quality, service and function.
