Date 2017.07.07

The Carl von Ossi­et­zky Uni­ver­si­ty of Old­en­burg has made prove­nance re­search a key part of its Mu­se­um and Ex­hi­bi­tion mas­ter’s pro­gram.

The Prove­nance, Law and In­ter­na­tion­al­iza­tion mod­ule pro­vides stu­dents with an ini­tial un­der­stand­ing of mu­se­um-re­lat­ed le­gal is­sues, par­tic­u­lar­ly from an in­ter­na­tion­al per­spec­tive, and fos­ters a sharp­er un­der­stand­ing through a one-week ex­cur­sion abroad.
Prove­nance re­search is in a strong start­ing po­si­tion in terms of re­search and teach­ing, with sev­er­al new pro­fes­sor­ships at the Uni­ver­si­ties of Bonn and Ham­burg, the new­ly es­tab­lished mas­ter’s pro­gram “Col­lec­tions—Prove­nance—Cul­tur­al her­itage” at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Würzburg and ad­vanced train­ing in prove­nance re­search at FU Berlin, which is fund­ed by the Ger­man Lost Art Foun­da­tion.
