Artist in Residence May-July 2011
The Jakob Bengel-Foundation in cooperation with the University of Applied Scienes Trier has started an artist-in-residence program in May 2006. The Artists are invited to work for a period of 1 to 3 months in the historical chain and bijoux factory Jakob Bengel.
One of the aims of the A.i.R. program is the establishment of a collection of contemporary jewellery in Idar-Oberstein. All artists-in-residence donate one piece for the collection. Because of the tight schedule of the program, the collection is extended by about 8 pieces per year.
