Yesterday we had our last cultural visit in what could be called a cultural year for Dujat. Due to postponing in two years of covid, many networking events at museums took place this year. It was our pleasure to finally introduce Dujat members to Nihon no hanga: a small hidden gem in the city centre of Amsterdam, where we could admire beautiful Japanese artworks and learn more about the interesting Japanese woodblock prints.
The museum will officially open its doors again in November with a new exhibition, so we strongly recommend to visit their website nihon-no-hanga.nl and sign up for their newsletter to stay up to date.
We are pleased to inform you that the Nihon no hanga museum in Amsterdam will open its doors to welcome a small group of Dujat members for a tour, presentation and drinks, on Monday the 1st of August from 17:00.
Located in a 17th century canal house with Amsterdam School elements, lies the hidden treasure Nihon no hanga, which is a small private museum dedicated to showcase exhibitions created around a collection of 20th century Japanese prints, collected over 30 years by Elise Wessels.
Nihon no hanga collaborates with specialists and museums around the world and their exhibitions have been received favorably by international audiences. The museum strives to further the understanding of modern and contemporary Japanese woodblock prints.
Due to the limited space, only a small group of Dujat members can be welcomed. We therefore recommend to register as soon as possible.
