What are the activities of the Society for Indo-Asian Art Berlin (GIAK) ?

The Society for Indo-Asian Art Berlin was founded on 24 April 1993 as a non-profit organisation.

The Society aims to disseminate, deepen and promote the knowledge and understanding of Indian art, which, according to scholarly opinion, also includes the art of South-East and Central Asia. It is therefore here after referred to as Indo-Asian art.

In particular, the GIAK supports the collection of South, South-East and Central Asian art at the Museum of Asian Art, which was founded on 4 December 2006. The museum combines the former Museum of Indian Art and the Museum of East Asian Art and is one of the Berlin State Museums…
