About

Current Obsession is a platform and a forecasting agency for contemporary jewellery, appreciated for its experimental approach and unconventional style. Current Obsession represents exceptional jewellery designers and artists with whom it develops projects and curatorial events for renowned brands and cultural institutes.

 

Our open and positive attitude, energetic team and community feeling, make Current Obsession unique. Through our distinguished visual language and fresh vision, we offer new ways of presenting and experiencing contemporary jewellery.

 

Current Obsession connects diverse audiences in and beyond the field of jewellery and gives a voice to the makers. Professional and trustworthy, it is the place to go for an international and cross-disciplinary network of designers, artists, brands and institutes. Our knowledge, expertise and continuous search for what is ‘current’ in the field, establishes Current Obsession as a trailblazer in contemporary jewellery and beyond.

 

Today our activities, as both a printed publication and an interactive platform, take the shape of diverse collaborations that span communities, cultures and art genres that relate to contemporary jewellery. Current Obsession’s ongoing projects include Munich Jewellery Week and OBSESSED! Jewellery in The Netherlands.
