Intro
The video festival SMCK ON REEL // Civilization Rebooted will be screened during Munich’s international Schmuck Week in March 2023 and presented online via SMCK ON REEL homepage and social media. An additional service will feature selected participants in SMCK Magazine #9 (March issue).
If our civilization perishes, or dies in a nuclear accident or war, how will it re-emerge?

SMCK ON REEL 2023 // Civilization Rebooted addresses artists, designers, crafters, curators, educators, gallerists, and art professionals, working in the field of jewellery, object, wearable art and crafts, to treat through the medium video topics such as climate change, environmental catastrophe, war, fear, death, rebirth, renaissance, recycling, new values, and new aesthetics. There is room for vision, initiative, and hope before the catastrophe, offering a challenge for artists and designers to influence -through their struggle for harmony and beauty- the minds and hearts of people committed to peace.

SMCK ON REEL 2023 // Civilization Rebooted videos will be screened from Thursday 8 to Saturday 10 March 2023 at Weltraum, a multi-awarded art gallery, and at Bayerischer Kunstgewerbeverein in downtown Munich.

Reels -the art of the moving image- deploy the artist’s narrative and enable the public to understand better the maker’s background, work and message. More than eighty-five international jewellery artists, designers, art institutions, and collectives participated in SMCK ON REEL 2022 which took place in Munich, Vilnius, Bucharest, Leipzig, Hamburg, and Kyiv.

SMCK ON REEL 2023 is scheduled to be screened in Munich Schmuck 2023, Legnica Silver Festival 2023 (Poland), Romanian Jewelry Week Bucharest etc... The video festival is curated by SMCK Magazine.
