100 Years of Czech Design

Overview

The Czech Republic’s relationship with Japan dates back to the time when the country was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The surprisingly strong bond between the nations spans two world wars and extends to the present day. A century has passed since the country’s first president Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk declared Czechoslovakian independence in 1918. Along with some historical background, this exhibition presents some 250 works stretching from the eve of independence to the current era, and includes Art Nouveau, Czech cubism, Art Deco as well as product designs, toys, and animation.
