Jewelry and artefacts as artistic medium
The Jewelry and artefacts Arts Class fosters a spirit of cooperation and openness between disciplines, artistic exploration and innovative work processes.
Taking the view of artists as originators, as "creators" of ideas, the inventive phase within the study process assumes an outstanding role. An atmosphere must be created in which students learn the essentials, and are inspired to develop their own personal approaches. Training is therefore based on nurturing students' individual talents. The students themselves are free to develop their own concepts and realise artistic projects on their own initiative. Study is aimed at acquiring individual skills and improving theoretical and practical proficiency. A poetic approach, imagination and Utopian vision lead to experience and expertise.
Jewelry and artefacts as objects of everyday culture are a multi-faceted phenomenon that comprises cultural, social and economic components. The course deals with the wide spectrum and richness of the jewelry and artefacts field. The object is to observe the concept of jewelry and artefacts in all its manifestations and diverse forms, from various angles, and to understand its role within a cultural, scientific, political and industrial context – or quite simply, its social relevance. The focus is not only on breathing life into a personal and individual form of expression, but also on the positioning of jewelry and artefacts in changing times.
