If you can check out how a car works, why not check out whether a piece of jewellery makes you look glamorous, popular, funny, sophisticated, attractive etc?
If the project works, it will open new ways to promote and sell jewellery and everybody in this business can profit from the experiment.
If it does not work, it will still be a charming utopian experiment to be remembered for years.
However, we think in a country like Germany with shared economy/swarming/DIY dominant in the public discourse the idea will work and will sell.
More details on what exactly is Myths 2016-Test Drive soon. Stay tuned.
« Μyths 2016-Test Drive » have the honor and pleasure to announce its cooperation with PLATFORM Munich.
PLATFORM is a pilot project of the city of Munich, financed by the Department of Labor and Economic Development.
It offers space for cultural production, develops concepts for and with actors of the cultural and creative industries and builds new alliances between culture and business.
