The first international video festival inspired by jewelry.

7-16 July 2022
SCHMUCK JEWELRY WEEK MUNICH
In Galerie Weltraum & Bayerischer Kunstgewerbeverein

SMCK On Reel, the first international video festival inspired by jewelry and wearable art, presents video works in the context of rapidly changing social and aesthetic values. More than 60 international artists and designers, galleries, and institutions speak in SMCK On Reel.


SMCK Magazine's SMCK On Reel highlights tradition and future, memory and identity, environmental destruction and material awareness, femininity and feminism, gender, and social conventions. Eight Ukrainian artists tell the story of working and living in the war zone: of the spiritual experience of cameo engraving, the omnipresence of destruction and death, the consolidation of one's own identity, the determined resistance, or the ancient rituals to connect with nature.

The video medium became indispensable to artists, designers, and crafters during the pandemic. Its importance in introducing the public to the artist's world, concepts and thoughts remains undisputed. Reels, the art of the moving image, deploy the artist's narrative and enable the public to indulge in the maker's work. Jewelry not only serves as a starting point for personal stories, but also as a cultural catalyst that can change social values.

SMCK On Reel takes place 7-10 July 2022 in Galerie Weltraum and 7-16 July 2022 in Bayerischer Kunstgewerbeverein during Munich's international jewelry week "Schmuck". Later this year, SMCK On Reel is guest of Grassimesse from 20-23 October 2022 at the GRASSI Museum, Leipzig.

More information about SMCK On Reel at GRASSI Museum in Leipzig will follow soon!
