Off the Silk Road

Art and Culture from Central Asia

21†January†02 - 20†May†02

The art and culture of the Central Asian countries, as a reflection of the disparate social developments there, is largely unknown in central Europe, despite the regionís rapidly growing geo-strategic, economic and political importance. The programme of the House of World Cultures presented a variety of forms of cultural expression in Central Asia: from the practices of the folk religions to the works of the avant-garde.
