JAPONISME IN GLOBAL AND LOCAL CONTEXT
(International conference | Castle Garden Bazaar, Budapest | 2 – 3 March 2017)
Under the curatorial coordination of the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Asiatic Arts, Budapest, an exhibition entitled Geishas by the Danube – the Influence of Japanese Culture on Hungarian Art is held between the 15th of December 2016 and the 12th of March 2017 at Várkert Bazár (The Castle Garden Bazaar) in Budapest, Hungary. The exhibition draws relations between Hungarian modern art, the phenomenon of Japonisme in Western cultures, and classical and modern Japanese art. The exhibition has been realized in a cooperation between KogArt (Kovács Gábor Art Foundation), the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Asiatic Arts, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Hungarian National Gallery, the Museum of Applied Arts, all located in Budapest, as well as various other public and private collections in Hungary.
The goal of the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Asiatic Arts is to provide an international forum for critical reception and professional discussion of the new exhibition’s topic. Since our aim is being supported by The Japan Foundation, we are proud to announce that an international symposium entitled Japonisme in Global and Local Context will be held at the exhibition venue on 2–3 March 2017. We would like to provide an opportunity to link and synchronize research projects and materials that could lead to a broader understanding of the phenomenon of Japonisme with a focal point on the Central and Eastern European region. Papers related to the symposium’s topic in the fields of Japanese Studies, Art History, Theatre Studies, Visual Studies and International Relations will be presented by specialists from different countries. The program will begin at 9AM and end at 6PM both days, with short coffee breaks and a one hour break for lunch. The official language of the conference is English.

Ferenc Hopp Museum of Asiatic Arts
Hopp Museum’s garden revamped
The world traveller and art collector Ferenc Hopp bought the villa that houses the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Asiatic Arts from József Knorr in 1885. He furnished the building, which was constructed based on Géza Györgyi’s architectural design, with artefacts he collected during his travels, and, inspired by Oriental gardens he had the villa’s courtyard landscaped by the gardener Ignácz Starek. During his first round the world trip (1882-1883) Ferenc Hopp visited the botanic park of the town of Buitenzorg on the Island of Java, which he praised profusely in the letters he sent home. At the time the oldest botanic garden of Southeast Asia already had some 900 different species of plants arranged combining the principles of the English landscape garden with the Southeast Asian style. It was probably because of the impression the fascinating park made on him that he decided to have his villa’s garden designed using exotic plants and Oriental artefacts. He named the building, in which he created his own version of an Oriental atmosphere, Buitenzorg Lodge. The garden was home to works of art from the three main religions, Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism, as well as objects evoking the characteristic design of regions loved the most by Hopp, i.e. India, China and Japan.
The landscape garden has changed significantly since then and welcomes visitors with renewed walkways and plants while exuding a special ambiance with restored garden artefacts. The inscription of the Moon Gate conveys the good wishes of Ferenc Hopp that are also shared by the museum:
“Let joy flow infinitely through my gate,
Let eternal mirth flourish around my entrance.”
