Campus Idar-Oberstein: guest appearance at Schütt in Pforzheim

The ROCKSTARS from Campus Idar-Oberstein burst onto the stage of contemporary jewellery!

On 05.11.2020 the curtain will rise for the ROCKSTARS from the department of Gemstones and Jewellery at Campus Idar-Oberstein in the showroom of the family business Robert Schütt Witwe in Pforzheim. The setlist includes 50 hits and new releases by the alumni and students from the last five years. 
The ROCKstars present works that spin around the eternal material in jewelry: They are declarations of love, experimental snapshots or rebellious works revolving around gemstones.
Until July 18th 2021, the ROCKstars will have their guest appearance at Schütt, parallel to the traveling exhibition "Fe, Steel Prize 2020 Wismar, Hasselt, Lappeenranta - three countries, three cities, three schools" at the Pforzheim Jewelry Museum. 
It is not surprising that Schütt invited the university from Idar-Oberstein on the occasion of its 130th anniversary; as Schütt is the most important stone trading company in Pforzheim, it has close ties with Idar-Oberstein. The company had an Idar-Oberstein branch for decades, which ensured a steady flow of the best gemstones to Pforzheim. 
At Campus Idar-Oberstein, newcomers to the jewellery scene have dedicated themselves with body and soul to the intensive investigation of gemstones. Idar-Oberstein, at the same time world trade center for gemstones of all kinds and place of study in a certain seclusion, is for the students the rehearsal room, in which they break existing structures and develop progressive designs.
As ROCKstars, students and alumni stage 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 aesthetics and are thus socially positioned.
