back and forth – Liesbeth den Besten + Stefan Friedemann

Really interesting dialogue going on at AJF between writer/reasearcher Liesbeth den Besten and Ornamentum’s Stefan Friedemann. I find that Liesbeth’s response to Friedemann also functions quite well as a clear and accurate breakdown of the systems of contemporary jewelry as compared to the fine art world, even a solid introduction. They are both definitely worth the read, as this kind of open and critical conversation doesn’t get much better. LET’S KEEP IT GOING

  1. Hey Kellie, thanks for posting about these. I spend a lot of time trying to keep up with the AJF output, and so following these two I got back into reader to find your article ‘What Is It That You Do Exactly’ at the top of my unread list. Congrats on the article, it is clear and comprehensive. You’ve inspired me to be better – I’m now going to work on defining what I do (make jewellery about …? architecture?) and try to move beyond location and materials shows. xx m
