SCHMUCK 2018 – Munich Jewellery Week 2018
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.
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.
The art installation Transforming connects the Greek mythology and Greek mythological figures Demeter, Persephone, Zeus and Hades, their symbols and characteristic with the today’s changes that are being developed in the field of sustainable development.
The focus is on some of the Sustainable Development Goals, the resolution adopted by the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit on 25 September 2015 in New York, named The Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, such as zero hunger, good health and well being, clean water and sanitation, climate action, … This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. The resolution wants to resolve to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty to secure our planet, before it’s is too late.
