from 11 September 2020
Starting in the fall, the Museum Angewandte Kunst will present the beauty of the archetypal shape of the bowl.
It will show selected examples from the Far East, including China, Korea, Japan and Southeast Asia, manufactured over fourmillennia in a wide variety of materials and techniques. The Cabinet exhibition will trace a basic form of East Asian product design that evolved from the oldest Neolithic examples –all ceramics –to vessels made of materials such as jade, bronze, cloisonné or glass. Almost all the pieces to be shown come from the Asian collection of the Museum Angewandte Kunst
Curator: Dr. Stephan von der Schulenburg
