The Princessehof National Museum of Ceramics presents: KOREA. Gateway to a rich past from 16 October 2021 to 21 August 2022. The exhibition unravels the country's rich past and ancient culture on the basis of themes such as food culture, beauty ideals and rituals. Top pieces from the National Museum of Korea in Seoul will be brought to Leeuwarden especially for the exhibition. This is the first time they will be exhibited in the Netherlands. The exhibition includes precious jade-green celadon, pure white porcelain and ancient pottery, functional items such as musical instruments, as well as film footage and costumes. Contemporary work by Korean artists confirm that ceramics still play an important role in Korea today.
