news is exchanged. While the Schermans travelled “along dusty
roads to golden pagodas” you will experience no such inconvenience in viewing the highlights of exhibition which include a
puppet theatre whose figures have been awakened to new life
after one hundred years. The latest changes in the Golden Land
are pointed out, enabling you to witness the rapid developments
in Myanmar in recent years. How does a more fast-paced lifestyle,
driven by economic goals, harmonise with the spirituality of
Buddhism in its special Myanmarian form? How widespread is the
belief in the ancient nat spirits in the new “Tiger on the Ayeyawady”? Are the Naga still an “inherently pugnacious people”, as
Christine and Lucian Scherman recorded in their travelogue in the
language of their time?
Inspiring discoveries await you in the area dedicated to the contemporary art scene in Myanmar. Works by artists such as Nann
Nann, Khin Zaw Latt, Zaw Win Pe and Htein Lin demonstrate
impressively how fertile not only the ground of ancient Burma
but also the political past and present of the country are for art
in the new Myanmar. An exciting accompanying programme
rounds off the exhibition of the Scherman collection and offers an
astonishing kaleidoscope of different facets of Myanmar.

Myanmar. Pagodas,
Longyis and Nat Spirits
In 1911 Lucian Scherman, director of the Museum of Ethnology
in Munich (now Five Continents Museum), and his wife Christine
travelled to Burma, today’s Myanmar. Together they compiled an
ethnographic collection which is unmatched anywhere in the
world. It contains over 2,300 objects, 1,200 photographs, detailed
travel diaries and audio recordings. The most beautiful and valuable objects in the collection are now presented for the first time
in an outstanding exhibition. Join us as we follow these two researchers through one of Asia’s most fascinating countries: You
will meet a wealth of different ethnic groups, learn how they live,
become familiar with everyday life in Myanmar, attend religious
festivals and admire incomparable works of art. The trip through
beautiful and varied landscapes will introduce you to virtually unknown places. Whether at Inle Lake, on the Chindwin River or in
the vast mountainous regions in the west and east of the country
– a few steps will take you into completely different worlds.

near and far meet and where goods of all kinds are traded and
