- Schmuck 2013
The exhibition SCHMUCK at «Handwerk & Design» has been for more than 50 years one of the most important exhibitions dedicated to contemporary art jewellery. Works by international goldsmiths and jewellery artists are displayed here each year, including pieces by longtime renowned classics as well as contributions by young and partially still unknown designers. The selection for 2014 was made especially interesting thanks to the many new exhibitors nominated by the curator Jorunn Veiteberg of Copenhagen.

Handwerk & Design – and our artists
March 12 to 18, 2014
AND OUR ARTISTS:
Ulla and Martin Kaufmann's collection can be seen
Ulla and Martin Kaufmann have developed their aesthetic agenda together. The techniques of gold-
and silversmithing are the focal point of their work and represent the basic thematic focus of their tableware, jewellery and cutlery. It rests on their exploratory approach to materials and the diverse possibilities it provides for expression.

On Jewellery and Identity
March 16, 2014
Understanding Surfaces. On Jewellery and Identity. Pravu Mazumdar
Contemporary societies manifest not only surfaces of products, but also human surfaces functioning as ‘packaging’ and emitting discourses on interiority that place humans within limits and define their individuality.
Modern jewellery – in its contemporary, critical manifestations and its inherent tendency of breaching tradition – can break open the shell of identity and involve individuals in an open play of enhancement and change of masks.
Munich | Lecture | Sunday, 16.03.2014 | 11:00 p.m. at the Pinakothek der Moderne
Pravu Mazumdar also contributed to our two books Peter Bauhuis

Robert Smit on show at Padua!
"Rivelazioni esoteriche" can be seen at Musei Civici agli Eremitani di Padova
until March 23:
Robert Smit, painter, printmaker, photographer, jeweler, returns to the Musei Civici agli Eremitani di Padova more than twelve years after the monographic exhibition "Empty House", the last leg of a long exhibition that affected other European museums. The new exhibition features jewelry 2011-2014 Series "Letters to Our Lady of the Dolomites".
More about Robert Smit
All you need to lose yourself in this book is your imagination and perhaps a modicum of curiosity to trace the footsteps of the people who once lived in Robert Smit's "Empty House". Robert Smit tells a story about an empty house and the people who lived in it, including Bello, a dog he loved, and the girl Lili. He tells this story with his jewellery, inviting the reader to one of the most extraordinary encounters with this art form ever to have appeared in print.

In 1875 Moses Tobias Wetzlar moved to Munich and opened his own silverware shop. In Munich uppermiddleclass circles, a handcrafted silver tea and coffee service was de rigueur. That is the context in which the M.T. Wetzlar silver should be viewed. With this exhibition, this significant Jewish business in Munich receives the recognition it deserves. Alongside the family and company’s history, a large amount of silver objects as well as the Council Chamber cutlery produced in the M.T. Wetzlar workshop is presented.
