Intro
The artist and design engineer Peter Skubic sees creating jewellery as an experiment, a sculptural or performative statement straddling the borders between different genres, as a physical task and creative, liberating act.

Artist list

Peter Skubic
Selected works from all creative phases – including many in private ownership and a number that have never been exhibited publicly before – have been brought together to present a multifaceted picture of the artist Peter Skubic and his creative ideas in this exhibition at Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich.
»We produce art. That’s revolutionary.« This provocative declaration from 1969 is typically attributed to the jewellery designer Peter Skubic (b. 1935), who is to be considered within the context of the Austrian art scene from the 1960s onward. Skubic’s first unique pieces worked in gold were made at this time, and he was very soon regarded as an internationally respected innovator in this field. Through his work as a professor in Cologne and as visiting professor in a number of different institutions, Skubic also had a considerable influence on the young designer scene.
An unerring rebelliousness and radicality, taken to the extreme of physical injury, lie at the heart of his design principles. The artist and design engineer Peter Skubic sees creating jewellery as an experiment, a sculptural or performative statement straddling the borders between different genres, as a physical task and creative, liberating act. His tangible work ranges from erotically formed sculptural rings to clamp brooches, balancing and mirroring objects, as well as works with »invisible jewellery« and relicts from performances that have been saved like religious artefacts.
