Intro
Which jewelry, and why, appears to be as ice cold as the Arctic itself? Why is a bubbling-over bathtub the centerpiece of a jewelry group? These and many other aspects are displayed in this exhibition.
Guest Exhibition by the Hochschule Wismar in the Deutsches Goldschmiedehaus Hanau

Jewelry, objets d’ art, and photographic works from the Jewelry Design Department of the Hochschule Wismar are the centerpiece of a new exhibition in the Silver Room.

How does a choleric brooch present itself when it is playfully accompanied by the Chi Chi brooch and flanked by a melancholically dreamy and phlegmatic-looking brooch? Which jewelry, and why, appears to be as ice cold as the Arctic itself? Why is a bubbling-over bathtub the centerpiece of a jewelry group? Is age a flaw or rather the condition of a different beauty? How does jewelry art become a unit with tattoo art? What does the metamorphosis of a person into a beetle from a Kafka story have to do with jewelry? How can the theme of conformity to a norm become the starting point for a jewelry design?

These and many other interesting aspects are displayed in the works by students, graduates, and teachers from the Jewelry Design Department under the direction of Professor Andrea Wippermann of the Hochschule Wismar. In addition to jewelry, there are photographic works and pieces that could be called artifacts, which illustrate the design area between jewelry and product design. The jewelry also exhibits its philosophical dimension. Aging becomes a theme (Aging is a Flaw? Aging is Beauty!); space is allowed for the pressure to conform in modern society (Norm Conformity); the formative force of fashion is pointed out in a series of photographs (Madam Pillow’s Day); but Faith and Lost Memories also play a role. It becomes concrete in the exploration of the Genius loci of a village and almost universal in character when change is to be materialized with the help of jewelry (Personal Ornamentation – Design for Alterable Jewelry) or Light and Shadow.
