Munich Jewellery Week
The annual Munich Jewellery Week showcases innovative contemporary jewellery by both established and up-and-coming designers from around the world. It is the most significant event for the contemporary jewellery community, and it sets the pace for the entire field.
Every year MJW welcome people from all spectrums of the jewellery industry – from makers and collectors to students and educators come to Munich to be inspired by MJW’s diverse programme. Everything from artist-run exhibitions, book launches and lectures, to performances, mobile presentations and parties. What began as a collection of independent city exhibitions, has gradually and organically expanded to now include a remarkable 100+ initiatives, establishing in the process a dynamic self-organised community of local and international artists.
MJW is an independent initiative that supports and communicates information about the jewellery exhibitions that are held across the city each year. Usually in parallel with the International Trade Fair for the Skilled Trades at the Handwerksmesse and its historic jewellery exhibitions: Meister der Moderne, Schmuck and Talente.
Jewellery Magazine and Platform Current Obsession, coined the title Munich Jewellery Week in 2015 to give a name to this extraordinary collective effort. It is now associated with other professional fashion and design weeks around the world. Current Obsession aims to represent the multitude of exciting independent events as a whole, to give them a recognisable visual identity and to offer clear information to new participants, press and international visitors.
MJW 2021 Edition
Munich Jewellery Week 2021 at your door ✨🗞✨
As we face the uncertainties of the current situation on one hand, and try to counterbalance the overflow of digital content on the other, Current Obsession invites our global jewellery community to contribute to a beautiful, printed publication in place of our usual in-person programming. The Paper will be designed and published by Current Obsession and delivered to the doorsteps of the hundreds (or thousands) of visitors who aren’t able to travel to Munich this year.
Artists and independent curators are invited to build exhibitions on the pages of the Current Obsession Paper, just as they would in a space in Munich.
We will support physical events in Munich through our www.munichjewelleryweek.com website, CO Paper and social media, but we have decided to forgo the organisation of a physical MJW. This means we will not print a map nor make street signs for this upcoming edition.
Please get in touch with Leanna Thomas from Nale PR via email@example.com to receive our press release, available in English and German.
