Intro
A collaborative work by Susan Pietzsch and Valentina Seidel, published on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Schmuck2 in 2017. This collection includes beside photographs of the collaborative work by Pietzsch and Seidel essays by Makiko Akiyama and Anne Schloen as well an interview by Benjamin Lignel with Susan Pietzsch.
In 2016 the two German artists Susan Pietzsch and Valentina Seidel started their new project spring/summer 16_green gold at the HOCHsitz/ Glashagen MV. For a week the two artists wrapped the HOCHsitz Atelier in golden foil.

A temporary installation and performance that challenges gold both in art and in the context of jewellery. At the same time, however, the work also questioned places for artistic productions and interprets the concept of architecture in interplay with jewellery. Nestled in a place of yearning, for a limited time, the resulting photographic work is the artistic product that is preserved.

1997 - 2017
20 years of Schmuck2


2017 marked 20 years since Schmuck2 was founded by the German artist Susan Pietzsch. Pietzsch's working practice encompasses a wide scope-comprehensive work on projects reflecting contemporary concepts of jewellery, initiated under the name of Schmuck2 since 1997. In so doing, Pietzsch's focus lies on international, artistic collaborations in which she explores the significance of jewellery and the boundaries of the concept of jewellery in our contemporary society.

With Schmuck2 the artist explores unusual and novel representations of contemporary concepts of jewellery and brings together in its interdisciplinary projects representatives from different cultural areas. The intention of this process is the multi-faceted presentation of jewellery as a phenomenon based on unconventional and experimental fine and applied art.

In addition, the artist has documented her work extensively and carefully in many publications.
