Zimmerhof 2012
This year, the symposium’s program was put together by the French association la garantie. The purpose of this association is to promote jewellery outside its primary audience of specialists, to reflect on and compare the different ‘types’ of jewellery, from the traditional to the post-disciplinary, through various approaches: historical contextualisation, the confrontation of current practices, the promotion and critical analysis of contemporary trends.

We have chosen “the public and private lives of jewellery” as our general theme. The program will tackle, on the first two days, the different public spaces in which contemporary jewellery can be found, and how actors in the field have sought to challenge the boundaries between those spaces. The last two days will focus more specifically on private space (how ownership transform jewellery), and the body.

Our aim, in choosing this theme, is to deal with issues that have cropped up recently in opinion pieces and academic texts, and in contemporary practice: how makers sometimes produce for museums, and forget the user; how museums in turn try to propose ‘hands-on’ exhibition projects; how some individuals have literally gone ‘on the street’ to meet the user; how the body is at once a destination, a reference, and an arena of transformation. In short, we intend to provide a platform for debate on the exciting and problematic to and fro of contemporary jewellery between maker, wearer and institution.

Secondly, we hope that this program will give the attendees an opportunity to test a growing interest in the field for exhibition design against the larger historical and theoretical context of museology & (contemporary) jewellery exhibition history.

Last but not least - as the mandate of la garantie is not only to organise, but also to disseminate research & ideas on jewellery, we intend to publish the results of this symposium both online and in print.
