Jacques-Edouard Berger

 Deposited with the City of Lausanne by the Jacques-Edouard Berger Foundation, the collections of ancient Egyptian and Asian art amassed during his lifetime by Jacques-Edouard Berger, art historian, lecturer, organiser and accompanier of cultural trips, are presented at the mudac by means of exhibitions on a rotational basis. One gallery is dedicated to ancient Egyptian art, while two other rooms present objects from Asia, for the most part Chinese but also Indian, Tibetan and Japanese.

Two experts, an Egyptologist and a specialist in Chinese art, collaborate with the mudac to select objects and derive interesting themes from them, such as Literati Stones and Imaginary Landscapes, The World of Buddhism, Gods and Men in Ancient Egypt and Animals of the Far East. Guided tours are offered once a month on a Sunday.

Exhibitions currently showing: Death on the Nile and Pot Luck: Vessels of the Far East
