1 August - 31 December
Photo exhibition “The North Koreans. Glimpses of daily life in the DPRK”

The photos in this exhibition do not show parades and mass events of official DPRK propaganda. “The North Koreans” shows how people in the DPRK live their daily lives against the backdrop of totalitarian ideology – lives of a bizarre otherworldliness within the 21st century.

 

This selection of photographs - made by people who visited the DPRK several times; one of the photographers even lived there for several years - not only has a documentary value; the lines and colours of architecture, landscape and the calligraphy of the ubiquitous slogans and announcements are often strangely aesthetic.

 

Though the definition "forbidden photographs" is an elastic concept we can with certainty state that the photographs in this exhibition are not approved by the North Korean authorities. The book "The North Koreans" contains c. 320 photographs, of which 30 are exhibited.
 
Please note that the language of this exhibtion is in Dutch. The accompanying book is in English.

11 September - 21 December
Dressing the “Stans”. Textiles, dress and jewellery from Central Asia

As part of the 2017 Asia Year celebrations in Leiden, the Textile Research Centre, Hogewoerd 164, Leiden, is presenting a fascinating and colourful exhibition about textiles, dress and jewellery from Central Asia: the so-called ‘Stans’ (‘Land of…’), namely Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

The exhibition will include traditional textiles, garments and accessories for men, women and children, from all parts of this vast and relatively unknown part of the world. On display there will be many items including ikats, velvets and embroideries from the ‘Stans’ in general. But there will also be more specific items, such as Afghan chapans (the type of coat made famous by ex-President Hamid Karzai, and which he wore during his visit to Leiden in 2008), buzkashi apparel (used in the "goat-grabbing" game of Central Asia) , as well as hunting hoods and cloths, used to 'hide' the hunter. From Uzbekistan there will be examples of the famous suzani embroideries and ikat dresses and coats, while the Turkmen will be represented by a range of traditional and silver jewellery and garments for women.

The exhibition will be open to the general public from 11th September until 22nd December 2017.

For more information about the exhibition and the Textiles Research centre, see www.trc-leiden.nl.

13 September - 14 January
Gallery Exhibition: Mapping Asia

The Museum of Anthropology (Museum Volkenkunde) organizes a special card exhibition this fall. The reason is that Leiden University, the City of Leiden and all its partners are celebrating Leiden Asia Year. About 30 objects, maps and objects on which Asian countries are depicted illustrate that cards are much more than you would think at first sight.

 

Cards are not objective. We assume that they only show how an area looks. But what you see is the vision of man behind it, the creator and the client. They have portrayed how to think about a particular area: what is to be found and who is the boss for example.

 

Read more about this special exhibition on the website of the Museum. 

14 September - 14 January
Urban Jungle – Megacities in Asia

The majority of the world’s fastest growing cities are located in Asia. Home to more than 10 million people, they are today’s megacities. The riveting images of Dutch photographer Martin Roemers, and additional photographs from the nineteenth and twentieth century, represent some of Asia’s busiest urban centers: Guangzhou, Jakarta, Karachi, Mumbai and Tokyo.

Exhibition: Mentawai from indonesia

Thanks to the recent donation of Mentawai specialist and ancient professor of anthropology from Indonesia to Leiden University, Reimar Schefold, Museum of Anthropology has a special collection of Mentawaiers art and utensils in Indonesia to offer. A great opportunity to focus on these world-inhabitants during the Leiden Asia Year and during the Europalia Indonesia Arts festival in Leiden. On the basis of unique objects and stories, visitors will learn about ancient traditions and contemporary culture.

29 October - 12 January
Exhibition: Full of Character

For over 150 years, Leiden has been doing and carrying out research on Chinese languages and cultures. There is only a few places, with the exception of China, where there I as much knowledge and expertise available as in Leiden. In the context of the Leiden Asia Year, The Leiden Language Museum (Het Taalmuseum) has put its efforts to making this knowledge visible for the crowd.
 
Het Taalmuseum asked researcher Jeroen Wiedenhof to select a few items that show how China and Leiden handle the Chinese Language. The result is a photo exhibition with unique objects and everyday objects from Wiedenhofs own collection and from the Leiden streetscape.
 
The festive opening of the exhibition will take place during the China Theme Day: Fables and facts about Chinese language and writing at the Taalmuseum.
 
For more information we kindly ask you to visit the website of the Taalmuseum.

1 November - 31 December
Exhibition: Kumikai group| Sumi-e

Kumikai is the name of a group of practitioners of sumi-e. The name means "company around Kumi" and was chosen in memory of her Japanese teacher Kumi Kuwamura. Sumi-e is a relatively unknown painting technique that originates in China, but is further refined in Japan. Sumi-e is the Japanese word for "ink image". Its basis lies in Zen Buddhism. The first practitioners of sumi-e were monks who devoted themselves to a strict schedule of meditation in preparation for painting. This was at the root of the creative process, which further consists of rubbing the ink, brushing the brush and releasing the brush stroke on the rice paper. The rice paper allows the ink to flow smoothly and improvement of the line is impossible. The drawing is completed by placing one or more stamps. The characters in these stamps are the name and thus the signature of the artist.

 

You are very welcome to visit this expo during openinghours.
 

3 November - 31 December
Exhibition: A Wink to Asia

For this exhibition, students of Sculpture and Ceramics have made a selection of their works of the last two years, with a wink to Asia. Our students from the Masterclass Painting Voorschoten have started with Asia as a starting point. Also the teachers have chosen their own works to be on discplay that are related to the subject. Therefore you have the opportunity to admire the work of Elly van Leeuwen, Jacqueline Petit, Helene Doornebal and Netty van Osch.

 

You are very welcome to visit this expo during openinghours.

IOS
Android

 

While walking through Leiden, short clips can be activated on a mobile device as if one looks over a distant wall. The app offers two routes. The first one focuses on the landmarks of Leiden. The textile history of Leiden will be connected to moving images of a textile factory in Delanggu on Java, and the Leidense Burcht, the fortress in the city centre, will be linked to ‘Fort Oranje’ on the Moluccan Island of Ternate. The second route focuses on daily life by showing the Indonesian version of the student dormitory, a kos, and the oldest market of Jakarta in reference to the main shopping street of Leiden. All clips come from ‘Recording the Future’, an audio-visual project of KITLV recording daily life in Indonesia. ‘Envisioning Indonesia’ enables the walker to combine the business of street life in Leiden with glimpses of Indonesia, making strolling through Leiden a global experience.

 

The Envisioning Indonesia app provides a short (4km) and a long (6km) walk and is now available online for android and IOS. Download the walk-app for IOS or download the walk-app for Android.

A meal as a key to Asia. Eighty minor’s students are writing blogs about the Reistafel – a play on words in Dutch referring to travel (reis) and rice (rijst) that serves as a metaphor for the political, economic, cultural and social diversity of Asia. The blog is part of the minor Journalism and New Media that trains students for a career in (cross-medial) journalism.

 

The Reistafel is the winner of a competition that was finalised early in September 2016. Other ideas put forward were about doing business in Asia, backpacking in Asia and integrating Chinese students in Leiden.

 

The Reistafel is based on an Asian meal, the rijsttafel. Students will analyse in different editorial teams all the conceivable aspects of the meal: What does it cost? What kind of diet is it? Who eats together with whom and how are they related to one another? What is the cultural-historical significance of food in different cultures?

 

The aim of the blog is to use the example of a meal to convey differences and similarities between Western and Eastern cultures and the way they influence one another. The communication will be cross-medial, featuring written articles and videos, data journalism and podcasts. Visit the blog here.

The book 'Brieven uit Deshima' ('Letters from Deshima') contains the complete, original manuscript, scanned, each page accompanied with a typed version, a lot off illustrative old pictures and a palet of information of other sources. In the blog is told about the time before the journey, when the couple met, when Jan Cock first went alone to 'The East' and Deshima, to become wealthy enough to marry and where he opposed the English brave. A great deal of the 100 page long manuscript is about the journey itself and about the half year they stayed meanwhile at Batavia where they lived like classic expats, including having slaves. It tells off course about their time and struggle at Deshima and also about the journey back and the years afterwards till the passing away of Titia. Publishing this way, with the complete manuscript, lowers the mostly felt gap between the centuries, but was also seen as necessary because the last decennium a far too romantic version of this history circulated even in the university libraries.

 

The book is now for sale and has a price 25,- euro. It can (only) be ordered via www.brievenuitdeshima.nl and will be sometimes available at lectures and informationmarkets. A version in English is planned.

Monastic education was one of the most important aspects of the modernization project in Chinese Buddhism. This talk highlights several paradigm shifts in identity production that originated in the new-style Buddhist academies starting in the 1920s. The reimagining of a national Buddhist community and reinterpretation of orthodoxy produced a distinctly Buddhist citizenship discourse, which became the basis for Buddhist engagement with the nation-state in terms of property rights, political participation, and wartime activism.


Speaker

Rongdao Lai is assistant professor of Religion at the University of Southern California. Her research focuses primarily on the convergence of identity and institution in modern Chinese Buddhism. She is completing a book manuscript, based on her doctoral dissertation, on Buddhist educational reform and citizenship discourse in Republican China. Her other on-going projects include lineage networks and the transnational movements of Chinese Buddhists in the twentieth century.

Leiden Asia Year 2017/2018: Leiden Celebrates ASIA, come and join us!

Leiden University is renowned throughout the world for its top-class expertise on Asia, brought together in its teaching and research. In September 2017 the University will open its new Asian Library, an internationally recognised centre of expertise on Asia, that will assemble under one roof all the University’s collections on the region, making them accessible to students, researchers and other interested parties.  The opening of the Asian Library will be one of the key events of the Leiden Asia Year 2017.

 

The aim of the Leiden Asia Year 2017 is to put Leiden (the city, its museums and the University) more firmly on the international map as one of the world’s leading knowledge hubs on Asia, covering research, teaching, collections and expertise. In close collaboration with the municipality of Leiden, the museums and other organisations and partners in the city, the University will be organising symposia, conferences, lectures and exhibitions in the city throughout 2017, all on the theme of Asia.  

 

Leiden University is one of the oldest and most respected centres in the Western world for the study of Asia. It is the only university in the Netherlands that offers an extensive programme in the languages and cultures of the Asian region. The programme can take the form of a broad study of the region with the focus on a specific region (China, Japan, Korea, India and Tibet, or Indonesia) or a study that takes a comparative perspective. Our Asian Library is unique, in terms of both the breadth and depth of its collection. The Indonesia collection, for example, is the most extensive of its kind in the world, and our Sinology collection is one of the largest in the Western world. 

The collections contain rare and valuable items, including manuscripts, books, maps, photos and prints. With this impressive library collection that has been amassed over a period of centuries, its top-quality teaching, and research focusing on and informed by the interaction between traditions and modernity, the University attracts students and researchers interested in Asia from all parts of the world.

The Asia Year will be given a strong national and international profile so that all parties who are interested in Asia, researchers and relevant partners worldwide will be aware that throughout 2017 Asia will be the focus of attention in Leiden. The University and partners hope that the Leiden Asia Year 2017, with its broad range of interesting activities for different target groups, will attract large numbers of visitors to the city.

The faculties, institutes and University library already organise a diverse range of activities every year on the theme of Asia. Next year, these activities will be brought together under the flag of the Leiden Asia Year. Besides these specific Asia activities, in 2017 Asia will  be the theme for all the regular annual events organised by the University (Dies Natalis, opening of the Academic Year, 3 October University, Cleveringa lectures, the remit of the Cleveringa professor, the Huizinga lecture and many others). And finally – together with partners from the city of Leiden – special events will be set up to mark the opening of the New Asian Library in September 2017.
