Movement as a form of life. Encounters and transformations in the spaces of Asia is a series of seminars organised in collaboration between the Andrzej Wawrzyniak Asia and Pacific Musuem and the Comission on Asian Studies at the Comittee for Ethnological Studies, PAS, with financial support from the Polish Academy of Sciences.
The seminars will take place durinf the first six monts after the opening of a new permanent exhibition entitled Journeys to the East. The exhibition will take visitors through the cities of the Silk Road, under the arches of the bazaar, into the yurts of Mongolian shepherds and around the Javanese pendhapa pavilion. In this new exhibition, the museum presents nine hundred of the most valuable objects from Southwest Asia, Central Asia, Mongolia and Indonesia.
Each seminar will focus on a different region of Asia presented in the exhibition, and one of them will focus on museum work and exhibition practice itself. We asked the lecturers to focus on change, on movement, on the mobility of people, objects and ideas.
