Campus for Design and Art

Exhibition "ROCKSTARS on tour"

The ROCKSTARS from Campus Idar-Oberstein storm the stage of contemporary jewellery! On 05.guest appearance from 06.11.2020 until 13.02.2021 opens at Schütt in Pforzheim. In the showroom, about 50 works will be the curtain for the ROCKSTARS students and alumni of the department of gemstone and jewellery from Idar-Oberstein in the showroom of the family business Robert SCHÜTT Witwe in Pforzheim. The set list shows 50 hits and new releases of the alumni and students from the last five years. Visitors can try on and purchase the jewellery during regular opening hours.

The ROCKSTARS present works that revolve around the eternal material in jewellery: They are declarations of love, experimental snapshots or rebellious works all about gemstones. The ROCKSTARS will be guests at SCHÜTT until 13 February 2021, parallel to the travelling exhibition "Fe, Steel Prize 2020 Wismar, Hasselt, Lappeenranta - three countries, three cities, three schools" at the Pforzheim Jewellery Museum. It comes as no surprise that SCHÜTT invited the university from Idar-Oberstein on the occasion of its 130th anniversary; the most important Pforzheim stone trading company is closely associated with Idar-Oberstein. For decades, SCHÜT had an Idar-Oberstein branch that ensured a steady flow of the best gems to Pforzheim.

At the Idar-Oberstein Campus, newcomers to the jewellery scene have dedicated themselves body and soul to the intensive study of gemstones. Idar-Oberstein, at the same time a world trade centre for gemstones of all kinds and a place of study in absolute seclusion, is the rehearsal room for the students, where they break up existing structures and develop progressive designs. As ROCKSTARS, students and alumni appear with contemporary pieces of jewellery that not only show the material gemstone in unexpected and unconventional applications, but at the same time redefine elements of a centuries-old gemstone aesthetic and are thus socially positioned.
