A Matter of Act – Sustainability in Contemporary Jewellery

matter of ....

 

Steinbeisser believes in a world that is environmental, social and cultural conscious. Since we all live together on the same planet we feel it is important to be responsible towards the consumption of its resources and the way these resources are being made available for use.
Sustainability and Jewellery
Sustainability in contemporary jewellery is a topic that has been touched upon from time to time however few jewellers know the environmental and social impacts of the materials and techniques they often use.

A Matter of Act
In the exhibition “A Matter of Act – Sustainability in Contemporary Jewellery” the works of Gitte Nygaard, Julia Manheim, Karin Roy Andersson and Nicolas Cheng will be presented.

The focus of the exhibition is to show how these four artists deal with sustainability in their art works. Concepts relating to preservation, recycling, fairly traded and ethically sourced materials run through the jewellery pieces.
Awareness
This exhibition aims to strengthen and accelerate the movement towards sustainable and responsible working standards, and supports a more humane and caring world.
