Intro
There is hope! Parisian chic comes to Munich! Yes: "Dit du Bijou", the confidential, underground Parisian and artisan get-together will do an impromptu session in the world capital of contemporary jewellery during the forthcoming Schmuck.
"Dit du bijou" is a open discussion platform which takes place on a monthly basis (usually in one of Paris's legendary gastronomic hot-spots): its aim is to exchange updates on the state of jewellery world affairs ('the news'), and discuss a given theme. Since it inception, almost two years ago, rarely less than 15 people gather every month around the promise of a good chat and some very decent terrine.

Aside from 'the News' (please come with an update on what you are up to: we want to know), the discussion that was chosen for this special encounter is the following:

Showing practice vs the practice of showing
How do contemporary makers and curators raise to the challenge of displaying tactile objects, according to / or against practice, habit, and institutional constraints?

You are extremely welcome if you are directly concerned with jewellery - and just as extremely welcome if you are less directly concerned with it (historians, curators, journalists, and their dentist, baker and astronaut friends will be given an extra helping of red wine to feel comfortable). We will endeavor to conduct the conversation in a lovely mixture of Frenglich and German, so that the Swiss may understand. You do not need to book, but please come on time, as the front row seats are filling up quickly….
