A year has passed, the contemporary jewellery community realises it when the ‘Schmuck in München’ program is out. All kinds of invitations arrive and tell about almost uncountable events. Impossible to see them all during these 3/4 hectic days.
Question is, how to select?
There are various possibilities: 1. Just try to go to the openings (area selection, what is possible because near to each other) so you can meet friends and eat and drink for free (won’t see much of the jewellery, but events like this are also important for personal PR work)
2. select the exhibitions of the artists you know personally to see what they are up to
3. listen to advices from friends or professors
4. just go to the big things with big names
5. random selection with closed eyes
Well after this introduction there you go with the Alchimia selection, and of course we choose only Alchimia students, teachers and alumni. (there needs to be some kind of ‘patriotism’)
First and most important, the strangest (I am pretty sure about this) exhibition of and about jewellery you might have ever seen.
So don’t miss it!!!!

Objects, Continued- From My Microwave With Love.
Strange machines travelling through time; made a long time ago but only a few weeks old.
Just because we can see their inner mechanism it doesn’t mean we understand what they are supposed to do, any more than we understand what’s going on inside a computer chip. Someone made them, someone has to use them. By themselves they don’t move; they do not solve problems, nor create them.
Why are these objects here, now? They started appearing in my microwave, in September 2013.
I started collecting the things and trying to find a sense to this all. Some pieces worked by themselves, some others were components of a bigger whole; some parts are apparently missing.
I get a glimpse of the person that is doing this, but I cannot communicate with her (travelling forward in time is easy, we all do that, one minute every sixty seconds; but travelling backwards is not).
By trying to make sense of a past that could have been, I think about how different the things we interact with everyday would be; and how similar the reactions.
There’s a fine line between brilliant and lunatic; determined and deluded.
Just a sneak peak of what you might find there!!!!
To be continued with further advice…………
See you in Munich!!!!!
