A Mind of Their Own: Jewellery from Austria. Focusing on Women Artists

Awaiting Stock. Usually despatches within 3-5 days.


With a focus on the women designers of early avant-garde jewellery, this publication paints a fascinating picture of Austrian jewellery production from the 1970s to the present day. The show brings together some 80 jewellery objects, many of which exemplify sculptural and conceptual approaches to jewellery design. Selected works from more recent generations not only highlights references to works of the pioneers but also attests to the developments of a contemporary, vibrant jewelry scene, whose diversity is yet to be discovered. The book’s title refers to the landmark exhibition Kunst mit Eigen-Sinn: Aktuelle Kunst von Frauen (Willful Art: Contemporary Art by Women), which took place at the Museum des 20. Jahrhunderts in Vienna in 1985 and is regarded as a milestone in the artistic and social history of women.
