ZLR Betriebsimperium is Christoph Ziegler (Z) and Loukia Richards (LR), both visual artists living and working in Hamburg and Athens.
Since 2012, ZLR is operating in the field of art and communication. Their love for jewellery, installation, performance, textile and participatory art is manifested in exhibitions and art shows they organize.
ZLR Betriebsimperium works with jewellery to raise public awareness on issues of consumerism, terrorism, pornography, gender politics, „DIY“ spirituality, identity,
animal rights and - last but not least - the Greek crisis. ZLR jewellery is exclusively made of plastic, textile, paper trash and leftovers collected in Greece and exported to the EU.
ZLR Betriebsimperium curates the jewellery art series „Myths“ (-> MYTHS website)
with exhibitions in Berlin 2013, Hamburg 2014, Munich Jewellery Week 2015+16 and Sieraad Art Jewellery Fair Amsterdam 2015+16.
ZLR participated in "Grassi Messe" Leipzig 2016. Grassi Museum purchased two jewellery objects by ZLR for its permanent collection.
