CURRENT OBSESSION is an independent magazine and platform discussing contemporary jewellery in a wider context of today’s visual culture. CURRENT OBSESSION is largely based on interdisciplinary collaborations: The mission is to encourage a dialogue within the field of contemporary jewellery and stir new relations with art, design and fashion. Besides the printed magazine, CURRENT OBSESSION offers exclusive online content via www.current-obsession.com
Current Obsession finds itself caught up in the issue of Fake. And while this may sound like a painful acquisition, we sense Fake to be much more revealing and promising than the negation of reality and originality it implies. Fake deconstructs a given identity and makes deep marks into the superficiality of value, production and glamour. Fake is like the shadow cast by the inflated value balloon we try to uphold, incidentally revealing a remarkable form of ingenuity. It also captures a sense of humour and engagement we as a magazine feel inspired by.
