Intro
Manfred Bischoff was one of the most important and innovative jewellery artists of the present day. He died in Italy, his second home, in March 2015. Bischoff was born in 1947 in Schömberg in the Black Forest. After an apprenticeship, he studied jewellery design with Reinhold Reiling at the Fachhochschule für Gestaltung (College of Design) in Pforzheim, and goldsmithing with Hermann Jünger at the Academy of Visual Arts in Munich. His work is considered unique and stylistically inimitable. Bischoff was highly respected among his fellow goldsmiths.

Bischoff's pieces are represented in many private and museum collections around the world. In the twelve years of his teaching activity at the Alchimia in Florence, Italy, he contributed to the international renown of this goldsmiths school and introduced a great number of young artisans to the craft.
 
In honor of Manfred Bischoff (1947-2015), the Galerie Handwerk is presenting an exhibition of his work in March 2017, during the International Crafts and Trades Fair in Munich. The show will cover the period from 1980 to shortly before his death. In addition to featuring many early pieces of jewellery, it will include drawings, gouaches and personal effects from Bischoff's home in southern Toscana. The project is conducted in collaboration with Rike Bartels, executor of Manfred Bischoff's estate in Munich.
 
In a further section of the show, goldsmiths who were closely associated with Bischoff, either as friends or colleagues will enter a dialogue with him in the form of pieces of their own. This group of 17 internationally renowned jewellery artists view their contribution as an homage to Bischoff. Many of them have created new pieces expressly for the purpose. Those invited by Galerie Handwerk are Giampaolo Babetto, Johanna Dahm, Georg Dobler, Gabi Dziuba, Hermann Jünger, Kadri Mälk, Bruno Martinazzi, Eriko Nagai, Francesco Pavan, Dorothea Prühl, Rámon Puig Cuyás, Gerd Rothmann, Hubertus von Skal, Bernhard Schobinger, Peter Skubic, Robert Smit, and Graziano Visintin.
