Asia Collection

Curator: Johannes Wieninger
The MAK Asia Collection consists of around 25,000 objects from China, Japan, Korea and Vietnam dating from between the Neolithic period and the present; these represent a wide range of artistic and artisan output from Asia and simultaneously provide insight into the centuries-long reciprocal relationship between Asia and Europe. Like other collections of its kind, the MAK Asia Collection is itself a work of Orientalism: all of the objects collected here were selected by Europeans and thus represent European tastes.
