After finding a perfect location in the municipality of Emmen, Tashi Norbu was able to fulfil a lifelong dream and open the first museum of contemporary Tibetan art in the world in 2017.
The museum lends a platform to contemporary art, frequently engaging in collaborations with artists and museums with similar goals to preserve and educate on Tibetan art and culture. Different forms of Tibetan culture are represented in regular live performances of painting and music such as mantras. This, too, is done in collaboration with international artists of different backgrounds. By doing so, the museum tries to inspire a diverse discussion about contemporary Tibetan art and its current themes.
