3 June-27 Sept 2009. The Austrian Museum of Applied Arts (MAK) presents an exhibition exploring the developments in European and Asian art over two centuries, concentrating on the idea of art as a means of communication between cultures. Select pieces from the MAK collection and loans from European museums document developments in the areas of art, history, science, craft and trade during 1500 to 1700 and provide a cultural insight into the exchanges between the two continents. At the heart of the display is the 'Hamzanama' - a 16th century Mogul manuscript - which served as a meeting of minds and a point of reference for the two great cultures.
Tues 10.00-12.00. Wed-Sun 10.00-18.00. Monday closed
