12. Erfurter Schmucksymposium

Erfurt Art Museum
08/08/2008 - 14/08/2008

The bicentennial of the Congress of Erfurt offers jewellery makers an interesting starting point. In 1808 the European rulers met in Erfurt and obviously possessed valuable insignias of their power. For thousands of years, jewellery has defined the social status and the identity of its wearer. The local Erfurt jewellery makers Heike Gruber and Felix Lindner as well as the 2007 Erfurt goldsmith of the year, Helen Britton, are organising the 12th international jewellery symposium and inviting seven other international jewellery makers. The group is supposed to inspire, prompt and release energy for individual artistic creation.
