Talking about the power of jewelry is potentially inexhaustible and fascinating. It implies returning to the beginning of humanity, not only as an adornment for the body but as the ideological expression of culture, and even more importantly, POLITICS.
Before long, and without intending it, I found that jewelry had become part of my personal diplomatic arsenal. Former president George H. W. Bush had been known for saying "Read my lips." I began urging colleagues and reporters to "Read my pins."

Jury Members 2019 Edition

Pravu Mazumdar

Pravu Mazumdar, Philosopher and specialist in Contemporary Jewellery, India.
Pravu Mazumdar studied physics in New Delhi and Munich and has a doctorate in Philosophy from the University of Stuttgart. He writes in German and English, and his books, which use themes like migration and consumerism to formulate a diagnosis of modernity, are closely connected to the works of thinkers like Michel Foucault and Walter Benjamin. He has written extensively on contemporary jewellery, which he treats as a material articulation of modernity.
Born and brought up in the eastern provinces of India and living between three continents and several languages, Pravu Mazumdar leads a typically contemporary interstitial existence. An essential category of such a mode of living is the idea of hybridity, to which Mazumdar has devoted several writings. Selected publications: Das Niemandsland der Kulturen (Berlin: 2011); Gold und Geist: Prolegomena zu einer Philosophie des Schmucks (Berlin: 2015); „Against Criticism“ (Parts I and II) in AJF (Criticality series 6 and 7).
