Stedelijk Museum 's-Hertogenbosch, 30.5.-30.8.2015
The Stedelijk Museum 's-Hertogenbosch presents Bernhard Schobinger: The Rings of Saturn. This first retrospective of the Swiss artist Bernhard Schobinger will show about a hundred items of jewellery that provide a picture of his disturbing method. Like a modern alchemist, Schobinger collects all kinds of materials and then transforms then into pieces of jewellery that contain references to present and past, value and recycling, beauty and decay.

Augustinermuseum, Städtische Museen Freiburg (DE), until 4.10.2015
Horst Kerstan from Kandern was an outstanding ceramist. He exerted a decisive influence on the image of German ceramics after 1945 and received several national and international awards. His interest focussed on the vessel and its language of forms.
Looking at China and Japan, Kerstan set himself the highest technical and artistic standards. For him China's glazed ceramics were the measure of all things - until he came to Japan in 1970 and discovered the highly regarded wood-fired ceramics. These two contrasting styles and the East Asian philosophies connected to them shaped his life and his creative work.
An impressive selection of vessels and sculpture by Horst Kerstan, pieces from his own art collection together with prints and paintings by Julius Bissier, Klaus Merkel, Jürgen Partenheimer et al. are on view until October 2015 at the Augustinermuseum in Freiburg (DE).
