Basel – Temporary art space Depot Basel has collaborated with jewellery magazine Current Obsession on an exhibition that questioned the notion of what is fake.
For the exhibition, Craft & Bling Bling – Fake, Depot Basel and Current Obsession commissioned 12 jewellery designers to create pieces that explored the subject of fake. The result were designs that appeared to have greater worth than the materials used, questioning what we regard as valuable.
'They challenge a situation, in which the original is no longer distinguishable from the copy and thus question all forms of jewellery,' co-curator Matylda Krzykowski told MoCo Loco.
This is the third year of Depot Basel's Craft & series. In 2013 the exhibition focused on craft and drawing, while in 2014 the show questioned the inherent value in design, a theme we will be exploring in our Autumn/Winter Trend Briefing, The Me-conomy.
