Power is expressed through jewellery and has done so throughout the centuries. As a result, we can understand the history of power via jewellery and strengthen our democratic dialogue on what power is today, how it expresses itself, and how it can be understood and influenced. Curatorial statement by the curator of the exhibition "The Splendour of Power" at Museet på Koldinghus, Denmark in 2018, from the exhibition catalogue.
