Further provenance research training for museum volunteers from Thuringia, Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt

Date 2017.11.13

Last week, the Ger­man Lost Art Foun­da­tion or­ga­nized fur­ther train­ing at the Kul­turhis­torisches Mu­se­um Magde­burg for vol­un­teers from mu­se­ums in Thuringia, Sax­ony and Sax­ony-An­halt.

Var­i­ous em­ploy­ees from the Foun­da­tion re­port­ed in de­tail on prove­nance re­search tasks and cur­rent chal­lenges. They al­so pro­vid­ed in­for­ma­tion to the vol­un­teers on how ini­tial sus­pi­cions could be de­ter­mined with re­gard to Nazi-con­fis­cat­ed prop­er­ty in mu­se­um hold­ings and what databas­es could be used for the work in ad­di­tion to the pub­licly ac­ces­si­ble Lost Art Database op­er­at­ed by the Foun­da­tion. Last but not least, find­ings from the var­i­ous ini­tial check projects and the Gurlitt Prove­nance Re­search project al­so played a key role in the fur­ther train­ing.
