The Temporary Program challenges the subject of jewellery on a fundamental levelâ€”how it relates to our present time. The approach represents an attempt to think big on a small scale, and presumes an ability to understand 'micro-working'. The input for Challenging Jewellery is based on intergenerational dialogue. An advisory board, comprising of four key figures in the realm on jewellery and design, ensures this will be done in a solid cooperation with the relevant fields. The visiting tutors and guestsâ€”varying from theoreticians and curator to contemporary architects, designers and artistsâ€”guarantee a continuous renewal of viewpoints on and insights into a discipline manifest in traditions, historical design and theoretical connotations.
