The Dutch female artist Chequita Nahar is known far beyond the borders of her country as an excellent connoisseur of the worldwide jewellery industry. In her role as the curator for SCHMUCK 2020, she selected the participants for the special exhibition at the Internationale Handwerksmesse. We talked to the artist about the role of her mentor, the famous Dutch art historian and jewellery expert, Marjan Unger, within the selection, the importance of the special exhibition for the scene, and the outstanding role of the city of Munich.
