SCHMUCK2 - the praxis differs


On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of SCHMUCK2 in 2017, the exhibition “SCHMUCK2 – the praxis differs” gave an overview on the projects of the past 20 years through a composable archive in DIY format .

In cooperation with Esther Gleuwitz (Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg/ Jewellery Department) and Marguerite Bones (Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam/ Jewellery Department) SCHMUCK2 initiated a workshop “re-evaluate the given and taken” in parallel to the exhibition at the TAG – Tamagawa Art Gallery in Tokyo, Japan.

The workshop did focus on our daily objects and how we relate to them. During a limited time of the working session, participants did exchange, react to, and reveal their impressions within the context of jewellery. Works produced within the workshop became a completive part of the exhibition.
