Intro
Once again, Not Only Decoration, the not-for-profit artist collective, is putting together a show, this time for an exhibition at our town of origin, Idar-Oberstein. Wearing Change is the 4th instalment from Not Only Decoration, showing works that take a fresh view on contemporary jewellery and for this event, NOD is not disappointing.

The critical topics covered by this exhibition express varied issues within the fields of social, humanitarian, environmental matters and even those that have a critical view on the jewellery industry itself.
At the opening, you will not only experience 39 different works from artist from 22 different nations, also you will get a new perception of jewellery and body, including a performance work by Laura Jack.
Also, we are proud to launch this evening the new volume of our magazine: Not Only Blah Blah, which will dig deeper into the topic of jewellery, body, participation and performance.
This exhibition will be taking place at the historic Villa Bengel, the gallery of the historic Jacob Bengel Art Deco Chain Factory, which embodies over 130 years of the industrial history of the city of Idar-Oberstein. The gallery is run by the Jakob Bengel Foundation in cooperation with the Trier University of Applied Sciences, Campus Idar-Oberstein and supported by the city itself. Together, they working on updating and innovating the traditional idea of what jewellery is. This is a very unique opportunity for exposure not only to the local makers but internationally as well since Villa Bengel has developed to a highly regarded venue for contemporary jewellery statements.
