‘Schmuck als urbaner Prozess’ is an experimental exhibition and research project where, under the guidance of the professors Elisabeth Holder and Gabi Schillig, students were examining and designing various outward forms of jewellery in urban space. The resulting objects, performative systems, installations and interventions all go beyond common definitions of jewellery
The symposium with its international and inderdisciplinary nature antedates the exhibition and reflects the crossdisciplinary character of the student projects. This, together with the fact that the symposium makes use of the same set of categories as have been used to structure the exhibition, the symposium will both deepen and enhance the research findings presented and discussed in the exhibition.
*Schmuck, the German term for jewellery, denotes many forms of adornment and decoration that greatly differ from what we normally understand as jewellery. For this reason we left the title untranslated.
