Intro
The board of the Françoise van den Bosch Foundation has chosen the German jewellery designer Florian Weichsberger from a large number of international submissions as Artist in Residence 2018.
Since 2011 the Foundation has given jewellery artists this chance to develop new work in one of the most vibrant jewellery communities in the world. This residency not only offers a live/work studio but also the chance to explore the unparalleled museums, galleries, and academies situated in and around Amsterdam.

From the beginning of May until the end of June, Florian Weichsberger will stay at Studio Rian de Jong in Amsterdam as successor to Sidney Caldwell Deaghlan (2011), Tracy Steepy (2012), Tota Reciclados (2013), Anna-Maria Saar (2014), Moniek Schrijer (2015), Rebecca Hannon (2016) and Margherita Potenza (2017) - with the support of Rian de Jong and Herman Marres.

Florian, who graduated in 2009 from the Akademie der Bildenden Künsten in Munich, wants to use this concentrated work period in a new environment to rethink and redefine his artistic practice. Through unexpected approaches and unlimited research, he wants to dive into 'The Need of the Unnecessary': Why is jewellery still of personal and social importance to people? Florian will present his work in July at 'Achter de ramen' in Amsterdam.
