The Danner Rotunde, the jewelry space in the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, was opened in 2004. Ambitious activities by the Danner Foundation and Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum, with the support of renowned jewelry artists such as Hermann Jünger, Otto Künzli and Peter Skubic, bore the fruit of two globally renowned jewelry collections. Today these comprise far in excess of 1,700 jewelry items, presented in pictures for the first time in this synopsis. Interviews with the makers behind these two unique collections in the field of studio jewelry enable insights into a previously unknown history, and an illustrated chronology arrives at astonishing results. Biographies on more than 300 jewellery artists present also those who have been virtually forgotten today. An indispensable compendium on the subject of contemporary jewellery art!
