Movement came to be the main theme of Friedrich Becker's artistic work. In the early 1960s, he began to create the first kinetic jewellery objects that remain constantly in motion due to natural body movements. Becker is the inventor of kinetic jewellery. The ideas behind his small sculptures, having the intention of a constructivist language of forms, are also translated into his large-scale sculptures. This documentation is the first survey of the many-sided oeuvre of this significant artist: all areas of his work are represented from the 1950s to his unexpected death in May 1997.
