Current Obsession is a jewellery magazine and platform based in the Netherlands. Appreciated for its experimental approach and unconventional style, it showcases new ways of presenting and experiencing jewellery. CO collaborates with exceptional designers and artists and develops curatorial projects and events with renowned brands and cultural institutions.

CO connects diverse audiences in and outside of the field of jewellery and gives a voice to makers. The knowledge and expertise of its team, and their desire to continue to search for what is ‘current’ in the field, have established CO as a trailblazer in contemporary jewellery and beyond, making it the go-to platform for an international and cross-disciplinary network of designers, artists and initiatives.

CO’s publishing, curating and facilitating activities now span a variety of communities and art genres, though they always relate back to jewellery. Its ongoing projects include Munich Jewellery Week and the OBSESSED! Jewellery Festival, which takes place in the Netherlands. CO is a media partner of New York City Jewelry Week and is responsible for the content development and production of its official newsprint publication.

In 2019 CO launched the Social Club membership programme, which grants access to exclusive journalistic content and events – online, in print and in real life – and provides the CO community with new ways to show their support.

Marina Elenskaya is invited to Sweden through Iaspis, The Swedish Arts Grants Committee for Visual- and Applied Artists.
