Otto Künzli: The Exhibition travelled from Munich to Lausanne to reach its final destination, the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum, one of Japan’s most prestigious museums. The Tokyo installment features two distinctive spaces, a traditional Art Deco residence and a newly built white cube, to appeal to fans of jewelry as well as the public at large. This two-part interview takes a closer look at the retrospective of an invaluable artist from the perspective of both the artist and curator. Part one begins with curator Akio Seki.
