IWCS members are invited to attend an English-language tour of the exhibit, “Myanmar: Das Goldene Land” in May. Your cost will be 6 euros for the entry ticket per member and the club will cover the tour itself.
While Myanmar with an area of 678.500 km² and a population of approximately 55 million people belongs to the largest countries in Southeast Asia, its culture and history are almost entirely unknown in Europe. Due to the recent political changes, the country has attracted considerable public interest and has been featured extensively in the international media.
The exhibition of the Linden-Museum will introduce the art and culture of this fascinating country to the European public and aims at promoting a better understanding and appreciation of Myanmar culture, history and art – through and through shaped by Buddhist religiosity as they are. The exhibition is subdivided in six major thematic sections, grouped around the relationship between religion, art, culture and lifestyles in Myanmar.
