The Value Of An Experience: MJW2018
In the 14th episode of Perceived Value host Sarah Rachel Brown travels to Munich, Germany to exhibit alongside the Philadelphia-based JV Collective with her recording equipment in tow. It's Munich Jewellery Week and Sarah is in the gallery with her microphones offering artists the opportunity to speak with her as to why they've come to MJW and how they are affording this experience.
This is Perceived Value's first attempt at live recording during an event; all guests, questions, and topics were impromptu. If any information shared during these interviews is wrong, please email corrections to email@example.com.
Munich Jewellery Week is an independent initiative that supports and communicates the yearly citywide jewellery exhibitions running parallel to Handwerk & Design expo, and its historic jewellery exhibitions: Meister der Moderne, Schmuck and Talente.
13 – 17 March 2019, Munich Jewellery Week will showcase avant-garde contemporary jewellery by both established and up-and-coming designers from all over the world. This yearly gathering is by far the most significant event on contemporary jewellery’s calendar; it’s a unique phenomenon which plays a pacemaking role in the contemporary jewellery field.
Hundreds of makers, students, educators and collectors come from all over the world to be inspired by MJW’s diverse programme that ranges from artist-run exhibitions, book launches and lectures, to performances, mobile presentations and parties.
Over the past decade, the gradual and organic expansion of the independent city exhibitions has boomed to a remarkable 100+ initiatives, establishing a self-ruled dynamic community of local and international artists.
Title Munich Jewellery Week was coined in 2015 by Current Obsession, to give a name to this extraordinary collective effort, and associate it to other professional fashion and design weeks around the world.
Our aim is to represent the multitude of these impressive independent events as a whole, to give them a recognisable visual identity and to offer clear information to new participants, press and international visitors.
