EXPO « A Matter of Act – Sustainability in Contemporary Jewellery » – Steinbeisser, Amsterdam (NL) – 1-3 Juin 2012
A Matter of Act – Sustainability in Contemporary Jewellery
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.
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.
This exhibition aims to strengthen and accelerate the movement towards sustainable and responsible working standards, and supports a more humane and caring world.
