21 April - 3 October 2010. From the 14th to 17th century, China was subject to great changes in politics, commerce and craft production. The nation eagerly embraced world trade, which caused conflict between commercial manufacturers and craftsmen who struggled to compete.

In order for the artisans to again become competitive, they organised workshops into which they pooled their creative resources. These cottage industries produced millions of high-quality paintings, sculptures, lacquer ware, bronze figures and porcelain objects, many of which are in the possession of MAK and are currently on show in the museum.
