SCHMUCK is a special exhibition at the Internationale Handwerksmesse (IHM) in Munich (Germany) since 1959. Organised by the Handwerkskammer for Munich and Upper Bavaria, the exhibition SCHMUCK has become the world’s most prestigious exhibition for modern art jewellery which under auspiciën of the Handwerkskammer has grown to become the largest event in the world for modern art jewellery with exhibitions and events everywhere in the city of Münich collectively named ‘Munich Jewellery Week’. 

The brochure by the Handwerkskammer is the most comprehensive list of interesting exhibitions during Munich Jewellery Week from 28 February until 3 March 2024; it is still a selection but the only one that is objective and does not base its selection and promotion conditional on the payment of a fee. 

You can download it here or pick up a hard-copy at the Internationale Handwerksmesse.

Dorothea Prühl - new necklace 'Hares' presented at FRAME

Dorothea Prühl (Breslau, 1937) does not go overnight when she creates a new piece of jewellery. Her new necklace “Hasen” (Hares) was developed in 2023 and finalised in 2024. Before Dorothea is satisfied and a new piece of jewellery can be presented, she has already made and discarded countless prototypes. This way she only creates 1 or 2 different pieces of jewellery each year. Her latest work will be presented for the first time at FRAME/Schmuck 2024 and has an edition of 5.

Veronika Fabian - Clasp me firmly, hold me tight

The contemplation on fear and security served as the inspiration for "Clasp Me Firmly, Hold Me Tight," a series featuring enlarged jewellery clasps and hooks crafted entirely from chains. Veronika Fabian employs the symbolism of jewellery to articulate the current zeitgeist, aiming to depict the yearning for assurance by highlighting the clasp's pivotal role in securing a necklace.
