The actress Bettina Zimmermann will be a new juror for the INHORGENTA AWARD on February 24, 2019. The 43-year-old already played a leading role at a prize ceremony in Munich in 2006, when she won the Diva Award as best actress. She talks about her new role here.
Ms. Zimmermann, you’re a juror for the INHORGENTA AWARD 2019. You and your fellow jurors will choose the winning jewelry and watches. Are you looking forward to your work?
Oh, yes! But I don’t view it as work. I see it as an excursion into a fascinating world, where great artisanal skill brings art and beauty to life. For some people, these creations even contribute toward defining their own personal identity.
You and your husband Kai Wiesinger utilize your craftsmanly know-how in the Amazon series “Der Lack ist ab,“ in which the two of you play an over-forty couple. How do online formats differ from TV formats?
No matter whether it’s online or TV format, the basic precondition remains the same: it must be good entertainment. With “Der Lack ist ab,“ we conceived a series that also works well on small screens. For example, the 10-to-15-minute episodes are perfect for viewing while traveling by train.
As a juror for the INHORGENTA AWARD, your tasks are to scrutinize and evaluate watches and pieces of jewelry. Which style is your personal favorite?
The jewelry and watches I wear every day are classical, timeless and not too “loud,“ i.e. they’re not ostentatious, but neither are they dull and boring. Depending on the occasion, especially for an evening event, I might opt for something a bit more eye-catching. But I always obey my personal rule: “either the jewelry or the wardrobe,“ which means that my outfit mustn’t upstage a beautiful piece of jewelry and vice versa.
