Ulrich Tillmann, Meditationen, 1985/2001

In this special guided tour, Jörg Mascherrek will focus on the guiding principle of Museum DKM – lines of silent beauty – and put the cultural history collection in the spotlight. How the artist Ai Weiwei uses an urn and vases from the Neolithic and Han periods to express an artistic critique of Beijing’s cultural policy will be revealed towards the end of the tour. Political entanglements vis-à-vis Japan will also be addressed and introduced to the current special exhibition Omoshirogara.
