Japanese home in Krakow:
20 years of Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology
|This is a poster exhibition commemorating the 20th anniversary of the opening
of the Manggha Center for Japanese Art and Technology in Krakow, the ancient
capital of Poland, by the Tokyo University of Foreign Studies' 2014 "V4
+ Japan" Exchange Year Project Executive Committee and the International
Center for Japanese Studies. The museum's nickname, manggha, comes from
the museum's patron, Japanese art collector Feliks Jasieenski (1861-1929),
who named it after his favorite collection, Hokusai Manga. .. This exhibition
was carefully selected from posters of various projects and events related
to Japan held at the Manggha Center for Japanese Art and Technology, which
is recognized as a center of exchange with Japan as well as Poland and
Central and Eastern Europe. By exhibiting 40 items, we will look back on
the 20-year history of this museum. Manggha Center for Japanese Art and
Technology Opened on November 30, 1994 in Krakow, the ancient capital of
Poland. The founder is Andrzej Wajda, a world-famous film director known
for his works such as "Kanał" and "Ashes and Diamonds".
Aiming to be a painter during the war, Mr. Waida had a dream of creating
a museum to display the collection of Feliks Jasieenski, an avid Japanese
art collector. You will spend all your money to make that dream come true.
The building, designed by Arata Isozaki, was opened with contributions
from the Japanese government and private companies to raise funds for a
total of more than 130,000 people in both Poland and Japan, who were impressed
by his enthusiasm. Events are held on various themes as a comprehensive
cultural facility where various projects are held as well as functioning
as a museum.
