Publication: Schmuck als urbaner Prozess

Artistic interventions in urban space.
Documentation of a research project.

"Schmuck als urbaner Prozess" is a research and exhibition project initiated in 2012 by the Design Department of the Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences and the Stadtmuseum of the City of Düsseldorf, the capital city of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. Under the same title, the results were shown in an exhibition and are now presented in this book.

In various seminars and courses and under the guidance of Professors Elisabeth Holder and Gabi Schillig, students explored the different manifestations of jewellery or adornment in urban space. The creative and artistic experiments led to new objects, performative systems, actions, temporary or permanent installations and interventions that are based on urban space and transcend the definition of jewellery. The conceptual structure of the exhibition is a broad and diverse range of developed artistic processes that transform the urban space in different ways.

The concepts presented in the exhibition range from site-unspecific designs that fall under the categories of Material and Inspiration, to site-specific and site-related forms of interaction with selected places and situations that are sorted in the categories of Exploration, Stage, Occasion, and Invitation. All the projects are linked by an analytical and process-oriented exploration of the Düsseldorf cityscape, as well as by an experimental approach and diverse media documentation of the resulting works. Through them, our perception of urban space is changed and new urban spaces of interaction and participation are created.

Schmuck, the German term for jewellery, denotes many forms of adornment and decoration that greatly differ from what we normally understand as jewellery.

"Schmuck als urbaner Prozess*" is a research and exhibition project initiated by the Design Department of the Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences and the Stadtmuseum of the City of Düsseldorf, the capital city of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia.

In various seminars and courses and under the guidance of Professors Elisabeth Holder and Gabi Schillig, students explore the different manifestations of jewellery in urban space. The creative and artistic experiments have led to new objects, performative systems, actions, temporary or permanent installations and interventions that are based on urban space and transcend the definition of jewellery.

The concepts presented in the exhibition range from site-unspecific designs that fall under the categories of Material and Inspiration, to site-specific and site-related forms of interaction with selected places and situations that are sorted in the categories of Exploration, Stage, Occasion, and Invitation.

All the projects are linked by an analytical and process-oriented exploration of the Düsseldorf cityscape, as well as by an experimental approach and diverse media documentation of the resulting works. Through them, our perception of urban space is changed and new urban spaces of interaction and participation are created.

*Schmuck, the German term for jewellery, denotes many forms of adornment and decoration that greatly differ from what we normally understand as jewellery. For this reason we left the title untranslated.

City | Jewellery | Incidents

The surrounding area of the Stadtmuseum will be transformed into a space for experiencing jewellery. Contrary to its customary tangibility and permanency, jewellery, better paraphrased by the German term "Schmuck", becomes an ephemeral occurence. These phenomenon of adornment can be consciously explored or experienced in random encounters.

Symposium: Schmuck als urbaner Prozess

Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences, Japanhaus
8th October 2014, 12.00 – 22.00 h

"Schmuck als urbaner Prozess*" is an experimental exhibition and research project where, under the guidance of the professors Elisabeth Holder and Gabi Schillig, students were examining and designing various outward forms of jewellery in urban space. The resulting objects, performative systems, installations and interventions all go beyond common definitions of jewellery

The symposium with its international and inderdisciplinary nature antedates the exhibition and reflects the crossdisciplinary character of the student projects. This, together with the fact that the symposium makes use of the same set of categories as have been used to structure the exhibition, the symposium will both deepen and enhance the research findings presented and discussed in the exhibition.

*Schmuck, the German term for jewellery, denotes many forms of adornment and decoration that greatly differ from what we normally understand as jewellery. For this reason we left the title untranslated.
