Welcome to Munich Jewellery Week Paper 2022!
This edition of the MJW Paper by Current Obsession celebrates both the artists who exhibit physically in Munich, and those who submitted their work from afar. Through an open call for submissions, we have received works from 133 artists from 20 countries, making this Paper a snapshot of the current global dialogue within the field of Contemporary Jewellery.
Current Obsession stands with Ukraine:
10% of all funds raised from the Munich Jewellery Week 2022 Paper sales will be donated to humanitarian aid efforts in Ukraine.
Release date 1 July 2022
The Paper is also available in Munich from the 4th of July at MJW Headquarters, Locke Hotel, Landwehrstraße 75.
Editorial Content – articles by Margaret Munchheimer and Nina Moog, each in its own unique way looking into the complex multi-layered history of contemporary jewellery, through encounters and conversations with artists. They take the reader on a journey into the past and provide insights into the future.
Collaboration – Our continuing collaboration with Crucible materialised into an introduction by the core team Charlita Hall, Kalkidan Hoex, Georgia Reynolds, Finchittida Finch and Roxanne Simone; followed by seven interviews with Crucible Artists Eve Lam, Farvash, Luisa Kuschel, Filheona Dkhar, Ayesha Sureya, Joy Julius, Sylver Eulalee Mair.
Exhibitions in Print – submitted exhibitions by artists, curators, galleries and cultural institutions from around the globe: from Malta to Norway, Iran to Korea, these manifestations of jewellery are beautiful editorials, staged exhibition environments and more.
Advertorials – commissioned content by our partner institutions: Museum Villa Stuck, Francoise van den Bosch Foundation, CODA Museum, gives a closer look at the work of organisations that support us.
Jewellery Environments – our Poster Campaign returns this year with handfuls of jewels nestled beautifully in a commissioned series of posters by some our favourite illustrators. Ever on the lookout for new landscapes for jewellery to inhabit, dripping with colour and texture, these digital/print hybrids provide the perfect speculative exhibition space for experiencing jewellery.
