Idar-Oberstein adorned:


26 January - 16 April 2023 in the Bengel Foundation

nsaio, "new jewellery from Idar-Oberstein", has now been a synonym for the presentation of works by students of Trier University of Applied Sciences in Idar-Oberstein over the past 20 years. It is a connecting link for highly diverse works, because we particularly value supporting individuality and personal handwriting in as wide a range of styles as possible. So it is not surprising that the primary goal of the Gemstone and Jewellery Department is to guide students on their way to becoming free-acting but critical individuals and, above all, independent artists with a unique identity. This exhibition shows the work of students from the last 15 years and thus also provides an insight into the development of the department. As the location Idar-Oberstein suggests, the Bachelor and Master of Fine Arts degree programme is not only about free artistic work, jewellery and adornment, but also - and often above all - about precious stones. They do not have to be present in every work, but an attitude towards the material should be developed. Studying in a gemstone centre presupposes this engagement.

This exhibition takes place as part of the exhibition programme "Idar-Oberstein adorned", a cooperation of the Jakob Bengel Foundation, the city of Idar-Oberstein and the Trier University of Applied Sciences, Campus Idar-Oberstein.
