The Museum DKM presents the extraordinary collection of historical kimonos by Yoshiko Inui (JP). The patterns and symbols reveal the drama of Japan’s rapid modernization around 1900 after its encounter with the West.
The kimonos will be shown together with contemporary works by Yu Araki (JP), Erika Kobayashi (JP), Jong Ok Ri (JP/KR), Kei Takemura (JP), Yuichiro Tamura (JP).
The exhibition is a joint project by Roger M. Buergel and the Foundation DKM.
