Intro
The upcoming SCHMUCK special show, organized into the Handwerk & Design exhibition, at the Internationale Handwerkmesse from 11th to 15th of March 2020 hosted at the Fairground Munich is sure to be a special event: After all, it was 61 years ago in March that the first edition of the now world-renowned special exhibition took place, which, for decades, has steadily been the source of new trends in the field of contemporary art jewellery.
802 goldsmiths from 61 countries have applied to participate in the special show Schmuck 2020 at the Internationale Handwerksmesse in Munich. The interest is once again proof of how prestigious this event is in the context of contemporary jewellery and what importance it attaches to it worldwide. Most applications came from Germany, but applications from Argentina and Japan, China, Korea and Taiwan, the United States of America, followed by Italy, Israel, the United Kingdom and Australia, Israel, Denmark and France were above average this year , Norway, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Turkey and the Russian Federation, Greece, Poland, Norway, France, Brazil, Belgium, Canada, Iran, the Slovak Republic, New Zealand, Austria, Hong Kong, South Africa and some also from Bosnia, Chile, Peru, Curacao, Costa Rica, Jordan, Iran, Vietnam, Thailand, Pakistan, Zambia, India and Saudi Arabia, India, Ukraine and Vietnam.

The selection for the year 2020 will be particularly interesting due to the juxtaposition of the works of well-known and the work of young designers selected by Chequita Nahar. All in all, the selection of the jewellery artist, who as dean of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design Maastricht, and freelance expert curates exhibitions on jewellery, shows many positions in jewellery - whether classical metalworking, the connection to fashion, poetic approaches, animal depictions, eroticism, painting, enamel, a mixture of surprisingly humorous, ironic, colorful, serious and conceptual jewelry. For the year 2020, a total of 63 participants from 29 countries will be invited to participate. Goldsmiths from Germany are the strongest in terms of numbers, followed by Korea and the Netherlands, but also Australia and the Czech Republic. The special show Schmuck is regarded as an important platform to make a name for itself in the circle of international goldsmiths, to make contacts and, last but not least, to attend the much-acclaimed awarding of the Herbert Hofmann Awards on the 14th of March at 5 pm at the Fair.

For SCHMUCK 2020, the trade fair organiser GHM Gesellschaft für Handwerksmessen mbH is designing a special map of the city with all events in galleries, studios and museums that will take place during the special exhibition in Munich. Alongside information on SCHMUCK and on Handwerk & Design within the framework of the Internationale Handwerksmesse, it lists other venues and events – and, of course, more details on other renowned special exhibitions at the IHM: EXEMPLA, TALENTE and MEISTER DER MODERNE. The printed city map will be available at the trade fair, and the online version will also be available from mid-February 2020 on the website www.ihm-handwerk-design.com.

Another reason for the jewellery scene to make the move from New Zealand through North America and all the way to Munich are the prestigious international galleries, which, under the title FRAME, set the stage for SCHMUCK like a splendid decoration and can be experienced together only at the Internationale Handwerksmesse.
