Publication : The Land of Morning Calm, Korean Art in the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Eastern Asiatic Arts, Budapest
The book The Land of the Morning Calm. Korean Art in the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Eastern Asiatic Arts edited by Györgyi Fajcsák and Beatrix Mecsi introduces the entire Korean collection of the Museum, which is quite unique, containing rich archive photo collections by the ship doctor Dezső Bozóky (1871–1957) and the founder of the museum, the optician Ferenc Hopp (1833-1919). The academic studies are accompanied by a descriptive catalogue of the 250 Korean pieces of different kinds the museum posesses. Many of the pieces are introduced for the very first time to the general public. The book contains a timeline, a list of exhibitions about Korea exhibited in Hungary, a map, and a table about the transcriptions of the Korean words and a rich bibliography.
The book introduces the latest academic results in Hungarian and English languages (in two separate volumes). The publication was supported by the Korean Cultural Heritage Grants.
