Highlights of the Danish Arts Foundation’s Jewellery Collection on view at the museums at Königsplatz Contemporary art from Denmark meets ancient artefacts in the State Collection of Antiquities at Munich. Exceptional Danish jewellery made between the 1970s and the present interacts directly with ancient art from the Munich collection, from antique jewellery, luxurious silver or bronze vessels to high quality painted pottery. On display are 100 contemporary pieces of jewellery created by about 50 Danish designers. The thirteen subject areas of the special exhibition are based on the “Works and Days” by the seventh-century BCE Greek author Hesiod: Treasures & Status, Tradition & Innovation, Meetings & Appearance, Form & Function, Valuable & Alternative Materials, Gods & Myths, Body & Movement, Women & Daily Life, Power & Women, Love & War, Yesterday & Today, Symmetry & Rhythm, Dionysos & Ecstasy.
