Magnificent symbols of power

06.05.2018 to 21.10.2018

The exhibition showcases a selection of magnificent and unique Danish and European pieces to illustrate the ability of jewellery to capture our fascination and act as statements of shifting power structures over the past 750 years.

The exhibition is framed by the notion that power structures are reflected historically in both jewellery design and architecture. Thus, in a contemporary museum context, exemplary jewellery holds the capacity to illustrate and convey the story of varying power relations, body and gender perceptions and stylistic expressions of power in a fascinating and eye-opening way.
