THIS LECTURE HAS BEEN CANCELED
In the context of the exhibition «KIMONO – Kyoto to Catwalk»
Lecture with Curator Anna Jackson (V&A, London)
Despite operating a ‘closed country’ policy for most of the Edo period (1603 -1868), Japan was still able to participate in a dynamic global network of cultural exchange. The Dutch East India Company, which was permitted to trade in Japan, brought exotic fabrics to the country and shipped kimono back to the Netherlands.
This lecture will examine the significance of these textile transactions and the impact they had on dress in both Japan and Europe, revealing how fashion was able to transcend geographic borders and blur boundaries between the familiar and the foreign.
Welcome note by Annette Bhagwati, Director Museum Rietberg.
