With its Asian collections, the Museum Angewandte Kunst is actually a universal museum which, in addition to the classic focal points of an arts and crafts museum such as ceramics, metal and textile art, also includes outstanding works of sculpture, painting and printmaking. These include 53 works of Chinese painting from the 16th to 20th centuries, which have been extensively researched in the run-up to this exhibition. Many of them are being presented to the public for the first time. After the lecture in the Historic Villa Metzler, Dr. Stephan v. d. Schulenburg will give a guided tour of the exhibition.

Whether in nature, in society or at an entertaining evening like this one: Every particle, every action, every person makes an important contribution to the whole. It’s the same with the molecules in chemical dyeing and finishing processes in fashion production.

A quiz will offer you an interactive deep dive into the chemical processes of the fashion industry and you can enjoy an augmented reality art installation by Frankfurt artist Maiken Laackmann and exciting impulses from the Frankfurt label Frischbeutel and the start-up Vidar Sports. The evening will be hosted by Jennifer Najarian, who studied fashion and textile management, and you can swap your own clothes for those of other guests in the open closet.

The event is free of charge.

Yang Jiechang, who has lived in Paris since 1988, is one of the most famous contemporary Chinese artists. Originally from Foshan in Guangdong province, Yang received classical training in painting and calligraphy from a young age. His art, which has attracted worldwide attention, moves between painting, installation, video, performance and sculpture. In his lecture, Yang will talk about contemporary forms of expression in ink painting. Yang does not see himself as a traditional Chinese artist, but rather as a contemporary, artistically active scholar. He emphasizes not only the use of the brush, but also a kind of pragmatic spirituality that is anchored in the here and now. Yang Jiechang was already a guest at the Museum für Kunsthandwerk (now the Museum Angewandte Kunst) in 1993 as part of the exhibition Mao’s Untamed Children.
