AUSGEZEICHNET! MOST EXCELLENT! JEWELLERY -- ART FOR HEROES. Ines Bruhn. Wasserschloss Klaffenbach, 2016. Published by Arnoldsche Verlagsanstalt, Stuttgart. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, New York. 200 pp. 24 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783897904583 In English.
Publisher's description: Heroes - the concept dates back to the dawn of civilization. Where there was society, there were also heroes: they were the bravest, the strongest, the most exemplary and outstanding within their field. In the past, heroes have been commended by medals, trophies, and various other cross-cultural badges of honor. But what constitutes a 'hero' today? And how might we identify these extraordinary individuals, to make them stand apart from the crowd? Ausgezeichnet! Most Excellent! is a joint project, organized by the Chemnitzer Kunstlerbund e. V., the Militarhistorisches Museum der Bundeswehr in Dresden (DE), and the Institute for European Studies of the Technische Universitat Chemnitz (DE). It aims to cultivate a relationship between contemporary art and contemporary heroes. The exhibit has invited jewelers, sculptors, and a range of other creatives to present the current attitudes of the public towards those deemed heroic, channelling their individual interpretations of the topic into their work. This book captures the most eye-catching and inventive exhibits in full-color photographs.
