The exhibition is dedicated to Alexander Blank (*1975), the 10th City Goldsmith of Hanau. After training at the State Drawing Academy in Hanau, Alexander Blank studied as a master student in Otto Künzli's class for jewellery and utensils at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. Since graduating in 2011, he is working as an independent jewellery artist. In his design, Alexander Blank's focus is on narrative, on developing stories. His work takes us into fantasy worlds and the unknown, with references to comics and science fiction. Alexander Blank further repeatedly references themes from pop culture and everyday life, processing what he has seen or experienced. The artist makes use of materials from our everyday environment, allowing his jewellery to become a part of it.
