Jewelry his- and her-stories: a talk with several beginnings, no middles and one end


This narrative performance will engage with contemporary jewelry¿s many histories: it will start over and over, and fail to continue. It will ask who is speaking, in whose name. It will end with an open question, and hopefully conclude in a conversation, which is where history is also located. Please bring your diary, I will be bringing mine.

Benjamin Lignel is an educator, writer, curator and artist. He was the editor of Art Jewelry Forum between January 2013 and December 2016, and edited three books under AJF¿s imprint, including the first book-length study of jewelry exhibition-making. He co-curated also known as jewellery (2008), MirrorMirror (2011), Difference and Repetition (2013), Exposé (2017), Medusa, Jewellery and Taboos (2017) at the Musée d¿Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and most recently collaborated with Suska Mackert and Nadja Soloviev on Tableau Vivant (2018) at the Pinakothek der Moderne / the Design Museum, Munich. Benjamin has lectured extensively on craft, and regularly contributes essays to magazines, artists¿ books and museum publications. He is guest teacher at the Akademie der Bildende Künste (Nürnberg), Alchimia (Florence), HDK Gothenburg), Warren Wilson College (Swannanoa) and is currently working with co-editor Namita Wiggers towards a publication on jewelry and gender.
