Munich Jewellery Week at Your Door
This special 4 part publication counterbalances the overflow of digital content that came as a result of the uncertainties of our shared global realities in 2020 and 2021. Current Obsession invited artists and independent curators to build exhibitions on the pages of the Current Obsession Paper just as they would in a space in Munich, Germany. Enjoy beautiful images, staged exhibition environments, rendered digital jewels, fictional stories and more!
