in Nov. 2005 is currently showing an exhibition of modern Tibetan art/ calligraphy and collages created by the Tibetan artist Phuntsok Tsering.The exhibition is first of its kind organised by the center since its establishment.

Tsering contributes a new art concept in Tibetan contemporary art field. Although Puntsok Tsering grew up in Tibet under Chinese occupation he had had the good fortune of experiencing a traditional “classical” Tibetan training through his family. Since settling in Germany he has been moving continually between the western and eastern cultural spheres. Puntsok Tsering’s works reflect not only his process of coming to terms with his own personal history, but also with western and eastern societal realities. He follows with great interest the cultural developments of exile Tibetans; but the new currents emerging within Tibet itself are what interest

him most of all. In addition he is also studying classical and modern poetry and contemporary culture in Germany. All of these cultural influences – but also the personal theme of his own identity, of being both familiar and foreign at the same time – are reflected in his collages. For these he uses handmade paper, fragments of brochures, newspapers – which he layers, lines up, covers with each other and then writes over with his own poems, words or signs.

Tibet House Frankfurt was founded under the patronage of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and under the spiritual guidance of His Eminence Dagyab Kyabgoen Rinpoche and stands in the tradition of other Tibet Houses in New Delhi, New York, Barcelona and London. Dagyab Rinpoche is a high-ranking lama living and working as a Tibetologist in Germany for nearly forty years.

The purpose of the centre is to build a bridge between Tibet's multi-facetted culture and western society, and is open to all with an interest in Tibet, whether Buddhist or non-Buddhist. It offers events and information on eastern healing traditions and methods, in Buddhist theory and practice, in the areas of comparative religion and Tibetology, and in Tibetan art and culture. It offers weekly programs, seminars, workshops and study retreats, led by experienced German and Tibetan teachers. It features a large event and meeting room, a library, a shop with Tibetica, a small gallery and a relaxed and pleasant tea bar.
