Venue description

Ever since its inception, the Manggha Museum has combined the functions of a museum and an active cultural centre, disseminating knowledge about Japan and the Far East. In practice, this combination led to the crystallization of a new type of cultural institution, overlapping, in terms of form and effects, with the understanding of the role of a contemporary museum: that of a dynamic institution, introducing new forms of activity, going far beyond accumulating, processing and displaying collections. The modern friendly building, designed by Arata Isozaki, a celebrated Japanese architect, accommodates a museum of a new type, which introduces novel methods and forms of operation. Its main task is to propagate art in as interdisciplinary an approach as possible. Relying on our extensive experience and contacts, we focus primarily on the visual arts, but also on the music, theatre, film, literature, philosophy and religion of Japan and the Far East. So far, we have held over 100 exhibitions of traditional and contemporary Japanese art: prints, paintings, photographs, installations, as well as state-of-the-art Japanese technologies. Invariably great interest is shown in ukiyo-e woodblock prints from the collection of Feliks ‘Manggha’ Jasieński; examples of such exhibitions include Mount Fuji. Hokusai and Hiroshige, Utamaro. A Different View, or The Treasury of Loyal Retainers.
