Intro
Artists, gallery owners, design schools and institutions, exhibition participants, and curators of Schmuck 2021 shows are invited to join Carousel and send their video advertorial. Additionally, Carousel participants get advertisement space in SM*CK Magazine #3 Schmuck Munich Special. SM*CK online digital and print magazine comes out in late February 2021 featuring interviews with KLIMT02, Ted Noten, Ruudt Peters, Lisbeth Den Besten, Gijs Bakker, Isabella Hund Gallery, Biró Gallery, Gallery Door, and more.
Uncertainty over Schmuck 2021 forces us to become proactive. It is highly possible that no weeks or fairs will take place before autumn 2021, as long as EU Covid-19 restrictions prevail. Digital and online presentations are here to stay. They are cheaper, faster and audience integrative. They may catapult jewelry artists into the limelight adding up a new audience to their followers and potential customers, challenging their talents, and offering new ways to promote their work. Craft Film Festivals worldwide show us the way.

After countless Zoom meetings throughout last year, jewellery artists have to face the fact: many of the online events are tiring - they may even kill a project! Without a strong message, digital presentations have no future. Times demand changes. The secrets are: narrative and performance, moderation and a perfect stage for your work.

The inflation of events surrounding Schmuck did not necessarily counterbalance the lack of conceptual intensity or visual innovation – it did not attract customers either. Luxury goods and art marketing experts - such as Christie's or Miu Miu - work with narrative, plot, and intimacy to successfully address buyers. Intellectual and emotional added value should be included in the promotion of the magic jewellery can offer. Having worked with curating, exhibition design, communication and media, video, and performance for over two decades, we believe that only fresh formats and original content can appeal to the public and the experts.

Flying Circus is the art exhibition and movie project we present during Schmuck Munich 2021 both online and in one of Munich's top ten galleries, regardless of whether the official show takes place or not. Videos created by selected jewellery artists are screened in Weltraum Gallery.

Flying Circus // Carousel is the promotional part of the Flying Circus, open for everyone to participate. In the intervals, between the artists' video presentations, the Carousel video advertorials are screened online and in Weltraum Gallery.
