From Buddhism to J-Horror, from Hokusai prints to Pac-Man, from the Thai spirit culture to horror manga, the figure of the ghost has haunted the Asian imagination for centuries. In China, Thailand and Japan – the lands that this exhibition focuses on – the popular infatuation with terror is very real, and one that permeates a wide variety of cultural productions. The exhibitions explores its omnipresence not only in objects and documents but also in the performing arts, cinema and comics. Find out more about the ‘Ghosts and Hells’ exhibition from the Musée Quai-Branly–Jacques Chirac’s website.
