About the Exhibition

Exhibition from the Department of Jewelry and Fashion, Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem, invited by Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum at Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich.

The exhibition seeks to reflect the spirit ‒ the specific “Sagsoget” (engl. alloy) ‒ of the Bezalel jewelry from recent years, done by students and graduates of the jewelry and fashion department of Bezalel, who came from all over Israel – from different sectors, ethnicities, and religions.
‏The combination of the department’s European roots, mainly German, and its geographical and cultural location in the Middle East, has given rise to a conceptual and creative dialectic, oscillating between opposite yet complementary poles. The featured works surrender a tension between the local and the universal – between function and pure idea – between a one-off handiwork and serial production – between tributes to the past and insistence on the present and the contemporary – between West and East – between work in a bubble and exposure to outside influences. In fact, this dialectic is the essence and core of the Department of Jewelry and Fashion at Bezalel.
