ThinkingJewellery Symposium 8th edition

Published: 17.02.2012

Our symposium ThinkingJewellery will take place the 8th and 9th of May 2012 in Idar-Oberstein.

The 8th edition of ThinkingJewellery critically deals with the responsibility of art in a world that is endangered by the human being and the ideology of unlimited growth. Once again, it is focussed on the role of the jewellery artist within the society and his responsibility. Besides this ethical question it also deals with the question if art and aesthetic experience will promote the process of the scientific perception and interpretation of the world and which role the traditional materials of jewellery art, gold and gemstones play or can possibly play within this context.
