Asia House, a non-profit, non-political organisation, was established in London in 1996.
To promote appreciation and understanding of Asian countries, their arts, religions and economies, and to foster closer communication between the peoples of Asia and Europe; to establish a centre for educational, corporate or cultural programmes; to offer these facilities to all organisations with an interest in or connection with Asia, including diplomatic missions, companies, arts organisations, societies and associations, and trade, economic, scientific and technological bodies; and to establish a strong relationship with the resident Asian communities and engage their knowledge and skills.
Asia House covers the countries from Iran in the west to Japan in the east and from the Central Asian Republics in the north to Indonesia in the south. London, with its extensive links with Asia, is a perfect location for Asia House. But Asia House's activities will extend over the whole of the United Kingdom and close links are being established with other European, Asian and American organisations with similar aims.

Ghazaleh Avarzamani: Apologie For Understanding Exhibition
- 3 — 14 November 2014
Apologie For Understanding showcases the works of emerging Iranian artist Ghazaleh Avarzamani.
The mutability and intricacy of language is explored: misreadings, understandings, misunderstandings, interpretations, translations, mistranslations and transformations within collective memory.
Through different medium she aims to define the communicational codes we share beyond the barriers of language, with statement and performativity of its verbal and non-verbal forms and expressions.
The subject ‘language’ can be pre-text, pre-formed to that which is written or read. Her research is on the nature of language use, cognition and meaning, and the relationship between it, and reality.
