German Lost Art Foundation presents itself

Date 2017.05.16

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.
