– weeklong jewellery festival by Current Obsession during Munich Jewellery week 2018
For five years, Current Obsession has been bringing you something new, something you didn’t know you wanted. You could even call us rebellious – always trying to create different ways to experience jewellery. By publishing magazines and papers and by organising our own events and exhibitions, we wrote our own rules. This year, we break them. For Munich Jewellery Week 2018, you will not find the Current Obsession Paper to which you may have been accustomed in previous years, oh no. Instead, we give you a programme: based on an open call we released last year, this is an experimental series of events for artists, by artists that do and seek something else. Being one of them ourselves, Current Obsession has always celebrated those who go outside the lines. So in the spirit of rebellion and in celebration during contemporary jewellery’s most exciting time of year, we are happy to introduce a new, weeklong jewellery festival: DOING THE NO NO.
DOING THE NO NO deals with the ideas of the unconventional, the unaccepted and the ambiguous. It delves into the economy between attraction and repulsion, and the uncharted area of ambiguity, inhabited by the ideas beyond the boundaries of what is considered ethical or aesthetical, taboo or kink. A word to describe the double bind between attraction and repulsion doesn’t exist. As a jewellery magazine and platform, we would like to define or invent that word, and to explore the different aspects this theme touches upon, always coming back to the field of jewellery.
