“Brain research tells us that only twenty percent
of human beings have a sense of irony, which
means that eighty percent of the world takes
everything at face value.”
Douglas Coupland

Depot Basel, place for contemporary design and Current Obsession, contemporary jewellery magazine, present a collaborative curatorial effort in the context of Depot Basel’s ongoing exhibition series “CRAFT &”. CRAFT & SCENOGRAPHY (2012), CRAFT & DRAWING (2013)

For ‘CRAFT & BLING BLING – FAKE’ Depot Basel commissioned work by twelve jewellery makers reflecting on the subject of Fake. Together with Current Obsession they invited artists to interpret the subject from standpoints of jewellery history, their own work mediums or contemporary art and society.
