Before German reunification, the world of jewelry was very much a part of life behind the Iron Curtain. With the presentation by art historian Dr. Katja Schneider on Renate Heintze - a goldsmith, one of the founding members of the studio jewelry movement in East Germany and a teacher at Burg Giebichenstein in Halle - Die Neue Sammlung provides a further crucial contribution to the history of the international jewelry design scene.
