Vis à vis. Asia Meets Europe
December 15, 2017 – April 30, 2019
In early January 2017 the Museum für Asiatische Kunst closed its doors in Dahlem to prepare for reinstallation in the Humboldt Forum. As part of the series ‘On the Way to the Humboldt Forum’, a selection of the finest works in the museum’s outstanding collection are now on display at the Kunstgewerbemuseum (Berlin), integrated into the permanent exhibition. Works from both museums are placed in associative dialogue with one another. This form of presentation vividly illustrates the lively, centuries-long interchange of materials, techniques, forms, and motifs between Europe and Asia.
