Vienna jewelry week

at alja&friends

For the first time in Vienna “NOD – not only decoration” will show that jewelry can be more than just an aesthetic for the body. Not Only Decoration, a global collective of makers who create pieces that contest and discuss ethical consciousness across many topics from environmental to social, was founded by artists Stephie Morawetz from Austria and Laura Jack from Australia. We believe that jewelry has always been and will always have the potential to be more than just decoration, it has the capacity to convey deeper meaning, and to influence

WEARING CHANGE

Germany at Villa Benge

Wearing Change is the 4th instalment from Not Only Decoration, showing works that take a fresh view on contemporary jewellery and for this event, NOD is not disappointing.

At the opening on July 4 at 19:00 you will not only experience 39 different works from artist from 22 nations, also you will get a new perception of jewellery and body, including a performance work by one of the participating artists, Laura Jack.

We are also proud to be launching on the evening, our new volume of the zine: Not Only Blah Blah, which will dig deeper into the topic of jewellery, body, participation and performance.

This exhibition will be taking place at the historic Villa Bengel, the gallery of the historic Jacob Bengel Art Deco Chain Factory, which embodies over 130 years of industrial history of the city of Idar-Oberstein.
