About the VCM

The Virtual collection of Asian Masterpieces (VCM) is an innovative project of the Asia-Europe Museum Network (ASEMUS) that presents a vast collection of Asian masterpieces through the web.

The VCM provides an opportunity for everyone to appreciate the arts, regardless of financial or geographical circumstances. It also promotes vibrant communication among participating museums all around the world by introducing their valuable collections online. The mission of the VCM is to foster mutual understanding among people from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Since its launch in 2007, the VCM Collection has constantly been growing: you can meet more than 2,700 masterpieces and around 140 museums from nearly 40 countries via the VCM website by 2018. These finest examples of Asian creativity present compelling historical narratives. In 2013, the VCM website has renewed with generous contribution of NAVER.

The primary intended uses of the VCM are educational and informational. Evaluation of the uses, strengths and weaknesses of the VCM will be used to prioritize follow-up steps in its development. This will help to point out useful strategies for reaching out to yet other groups of potential users.
The records for the VCM masterpieces are in both English and the language of the contributing museum. There is an option to display records in both languages.
Target audiences
  • Students and learners of all ages
  • Teachers, instructors and facilitators
  • A general public, including groups without previous
    attachment to museums and their collections.
