Museum fur Ostasiatische Kunst
Trudel Klefisch, Convention Chair, has arranged that the lectures will be held in the museum each morning. The Museum which opened in 1977 is one of the most important architectural monuments of classical Modernism in Cologne. It was designed by Kunio Maekawa (1905-1986), a pupil of Le Corbusier. The centerpiece of the complex is the landscape garden designed by the Japanese sculptor Masayuki Nagare (b.1923) in the tradition of Japanese meditation gardens. This symbiosis of Japanese architecture and gardens combined with the presentation of the exceptional East Asian art collection make the museum a wonderful setting for our 2017 symposium.

We look forward to welcoming you to our stand during the event.
