Beside the photographies printed on paper (from Marianne Schliwinski and Jürgen Eickhoff there are also pictures (photgraphies) on brooches from Herman Hermsen. From him is also the only real golden work, a brooch on which is written A unique piece of 18 ct. gold.
 
The title of the exhibition is free for any interpretation, means to stop working with gold and working in the mentality ”gold”  has as the metal, representing financial power.
But you also can stop for gold, or at the Olympics in the 80ies there was the sentence “go for gold”.
Gold has a powerful attraction, in positive and also negative sense. And it is in the responsibility of the maker, how he handles it.
