From the Publisher. The project AFTERMATH of Art Jewellery discusses perspectives on contemporary jewelry art. Numerous artists have been successfully active in this field over the past five decades. Jewelry art has established itself as an independent form of artistic expression. What is required now is to pursue new paths into the future and establish productive connections not only between the jewelry centers, but also beyond the limitations of jewelry. Four artists from the Oslo jewelry scene and four from that of Munich have joined together for this purpose. They are pioneering representatives of the young generation, who distinguish themselves through their own distinct concepts, their unusual choice of materials, and their extensive investigation of technical possibilities and skills, thereby exploring concepts for the jewelry of the future.

The Norwegian artist Sigurd Bronger is the initiator of this project. Bronger has chosen seven artists whom he regards as promising for the second harvest. The project culminated in an exhibition and a seminar as part of From the Coolest Corner: Nordic Jewellery in January 2013, and an exhibition in Munich in March 2013.

Artists: Sigurd Bronger (NO) | Norman Weber (DE) | Lisa Walker (NZ/DE) | Reinhold Ziegler (NO) | Stefan Heuser (DE) | Runa Vethal Stølen (NO) | Eunmi Chun (KR/DE) | Ingeborg Resell Elieson (NO)

This book presents a creative and groundbreaking assessment of the role and potential of contemporary jewelry art in the early 21st century, based on exchanges between four artists from Oslo and four from Munich.
