German Lost Art Foundation presents itself
This coming weekend, the German Lost Art Foundation will be presenting its work and main activities to interested visitors at the Kulturhistorisches Museum Magdeburg to mark the Long Night of Science in Magdeburg (May 20) and International Museum Day (May 21).
On both days, the Foundation will make use of a specific object in the format of “Discovering provenance research: Hands-on investigation” to show the practical steps taken by provenance researchers to determine the origin and route of a picture.
On Saturday evening, Nadine Bauer and Mathias Deinert, members of the Foundation’s Provenance Research department, will also give presentations on the Foundation and on the initial check project carried out by Museumsverband Sachsen-Anhalt museum association. The aim of this project was to examine whether there was any evidence of cultural assets seized as a result of Nazi persecution in smaller museums.
The Foundation will be taking part in both events for the first time.
