Otto Künzli. The Exhibition

Die Neue SammlungThe International Design Museum Munich

Otto Kunzli  

Born 1948 in Zurich, Switzerland, Otto Künzli is widely considered to be “one of the most intelligent makers in the jewelry world and also one of the most sceptical.” (Ralph Turner).
He has revolutionized modern jewelry art. In the 45-odd years in which he has been addressing the topic of jewelry, Otto Künzli has carved out for himself a quite unique position of far-reaching international influence not only as an artist and a pioneer, but also as an author and mentor. Otto Künzli’s works are based on complex reflection, conceptual and visual imagination. The result: objects with a clear, minimalist appearance, captivatingly crafted to perfection, and highly visible – jewelry that adorns and at the same time possesses an autonomous aesthetic status of its own.
The exhibition of Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich –  will premier in the Schaustelle of Pinakothek der Moderne, and is being realized in close cooperation with the artist. It includes around 150-200 objects and groups of objects from the artist’s various creative phases. This not only includes the jewelry items but also interdisciplinary conceptual works in the areas of photography and installation. By looking back, providing future perspectives and considering where jewelry stands today, the exhibition is essentially the first retrospective of Otto Künzli’s highly diverse work.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a comprehensive monograph. Ed. Florian Hufnagl, Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich. With contributions by Jacqueline Burckhardt, senior editor Parkett, Zurich/New York, Prof. Walter Grasskamp, Academy of Fine Arts Munich, Dr. Pravu Matzumdar, philosopher, among others. Ca. 680 pages. German edition / English edition. Arnoldsche Art Publishers. Design: Frederik Linke.
Further exhibition stops are planned, including the MUDAC Musée de design et d’arts appliqués contemporains, Lausanne (2014); Metropolitan Teien Art Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (2015).

    But of course just the fair would not be enough to attract so many people related to contemporary jewellery, there is an evergrowing program going on for the days of the fair, cramped with exhibition openings, talks, parties and even the launch of a new magazine “Current Obsession”.
