The Buddhism Project

duration:  
15.04.2018 - 26.08.2018

ABOUT

In 2018 the Manggha Museum is focusing on Buddhism, the historical and cultural role that this important religious and philosophical movement has played in the countries of the Far East, and its influence on the culture of the West.

The Buddhism Project comprises six exhibitions, more than a dozen lectures, a scholarly session, film showings, meetings, concerts, and curator-guided exhibition tours. Traditional Japanese and Tibetan art, modern-day interpretations of Buddhism in the Japanese comic form known as manga, and the most recent installation projects by two prominent Japanese artists are just some of the many events scheduled for the coming months at the Manggha Museum.

Come join us for these exciting events!

Jiutamai dance workshop

With its codified form and choreographies passed on from generation to generation, each of which is a complete story referring to everyday life, traditional beliefs or history, the jiutamai dance can be compared to a mirror reflecting all the major components of traditional Japanese culture. The workshop is thus an excellent opportunity to experience directly this cultural wealth of Japan.
