Unfortunately, the lecture by Kiff Slemmons has to be canceled.
The reason for the cancellation is the spread of Coronavirus / Covid-19 and the urgent recommendation made by the Robert-Koch Institute (the German government’s main advisory body on safeguarding public health and monitoring infectious diseases) that large events should be cancelled or at least postponed.

With the jewelry artist and designer Kiff Slemmons (born 1944) Die Neue Sammlung has invited to its Sunday matinée a jewelry artist who is renowned worldwide.
Famous Slemmon’s work with materials that are still exceptional today – old, used yardsticks and written down pencils –, her “Hands of Heroes” brooches, with which she honors important personalities from music, art, literature and politics, or her intricately formed paper jewelry that is sometimes highly colorful and other times neutral and was created in collaboration with the artists from Arte Papel Oaxaca in Mexico.
The Engelhorn Jewelry Lecture is dedicated to the memory of Christof and Ursula Engelhorn.
