Social Club: Intersectionality in Contemporary Jewellery - Lost Weekend München - München

If contemporary craft is to move into the 21st century, we’ll need to consider who participates in the field and why.Intersectionality is a mode of understanding the complex web of issues that affect the lives of marginalized people. Using this framework, and focusing on race and class, we will investigate the roles of universities and education, who is represented in shows and by galleries, and who comes to and participates in events like MJW.As we consider the implications of perceived hierarchies within academic craft practices, we might ask, how progressive is the field, really? We will be speaking with artists, educators, and theorists to begin a much-needed ongoing conversation about the state of the contemporary jewelry and where we can go from here.Moderated by:Ashley Khirea WahbaSpeakers:Leslie BoydKalkidan HoexRoxanne SimoneNamita Gupta Wiggers
