"Proudly African - Jewellery Affairs" at Villa Bengel

Opening 10.06.2021, 18:30 online.

The exhibition "Proudly African - Jewellery Affairs" shows works by African jewellery artists from various countries and thus reflects the extraordinary cultural diversity of the continent as well as the simultaneity of tradition and modernity.
The pieces of jewellery on display are part of a collection that Martina Dempf has assembled. The exhibition is complemented by works by European artists who are inspired by Africa's jewellery culture. Photographs visualise jewellery in African everyday life and at festivals.

We cordially invite you to attend the opening of the exhibition on 10.06.2021 at 18:30. The opening will take place online. Martina Dempf, curator of the exhibition, and Hans-Peter Wenzel, chairman of the Jakob Bengel Foundation, will give an introduction to the exhibition. Via video tour you can see the exhibited jewellery.


From 11.06.2021 to 06.08.2021, the exhibition can be viewed via Click&Meet.
