"If our civilization perishes, or dies in a nuclear accident or war, how will it reemerge?"
SMCK ON REEL 2023 presents video works by international artists, designers, crafters, and art professionals working in the field of jewelry, objects, wearable art, fashion, textiles, ceramics, and glass.
The curated video program consists of three parts - CIVILIZATION REBOOTED / EXPERTS TALK / ART IN THE LAND OF WAR - and deals with topics such as: climate change, environmental catastrophe, war, fear, death, renaissance, recycling, new materials, new values, and new aesthetics.
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 - CIVILIZATION REBOOTED / EXPERTS TALK / ART IN THE LAND OF WAR is curated by Christoph Ziegler and Loukia Richards. The video festival will be screened during Schmuck jewelry week of Munich 2023, from 8 to 18 March at Bayerischer Kunstgewerbeverein, and on 12 March at Schmuck Infopoint.
