Full Description

Margit Jäschke (*1962) lives and works as an independent artist in Halle (Saale), Germany. It was here in the 1980s that she studied at the Burg Giebichenstein art school under Renate Heintze and Dorothea Prühl. Her work — collage, jewellery, drawings, and objects — celebrates inspiration, the origin of all creativity. She delights her audience with her very unique vision of the ‘poetry of things’. The title of her publication is symbolic of her oeuvre: Kairos is the Greek god of the fortuitous moment, who can only be caught fleetingly by his forelock. It is this precious moment that Margit Jäschke seizes, harnessing it to fuel her creativity. Discover this renowned artist’s multifaceted oeuvre, which blurs the boundaries between jewellery, painting, and sculpture.

This book accompanies an exhibition of her work that will travel throughout Germany between 2022 and 2024.

Text in English and German.
