In today’s world of aesthetic URL personas, image saturation and sleeper-cell trends, a “new idea” has literally become a fresher mash-up of two or more things you’ve seen before.

Copy, make new, copy again to the nth degree. Finding that sweet spot between uniqueness and belonging is a pressurized, nihilistic pursuit. But that doesn’t stop us. When we get it right, it feels good, though maybe too fleetingly. FOTOCOPY makes the case for letting that feeling last. Jewelry, refreshing and familiar, embodies where we think we belong, capturing identity and realness, and our ever-shifting understanding of who we are. Putting on that perfect new ring is IRL self-actualization at work.

After stops in Munich and New York, FOTOCOPY Season 03 hits Venice, Italy with 15 international cult jewelers questioning reference culture, narcissism, authenticity, tropes and throwbacks. We’ll be making zines. We’ll be hawking limited edition jewelry you never knew you needed. See it for real, take it with you, get through the fucking day. It might not be what you expected, or it might be much more - you might not know how you ever lived without it.


28th of June, Friday, 5 pm - 10 pm.
