meet asian art: Antique? Renaissance in East Asian Art

29 Novembre 2023 - 24 Novembre 2024
Museum Angewandte Kunst

With the exhibition the museum is paying tribute to the enthusiasm for antiquity that arose in China around a thousand years ago and had barely developed until then, comparable to the Renaissance in Europe a few centuries later.⁠

At the center of attention were bronze-cast ritual vessels from the Shang and Zhou dynasties (16th century – 221 BC), which have repeatedly been brought to light during excavations of ancient burial sites since that time. The early masterpieces of bronze casting have now also been included in art collections and scientifically analyzed. However, copies and forgeries based on ancient artefacts have not been uncommon since then either. Most of the 33 exhibited works from the remarkable collection of the Museum Angewandte Kunst show a rather free and playful approach to the formal and decorative language of antiquity.
