Board of trustees elects Dr. Ute Haug as new chair
On November 27, 2018, Dr. Ute Haug was elected as the new chair of the German Lost Art Foundation’s board of trustees. She succeeds Isabel Pfeiffer-Poensgen, who resigned as a member of the board of trustees and thus as its chair on June 30, 2017 after being appointed Minister of Culture and Science for the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
The board of trustees thanked Prof. Köhne for his commitment in leading the board as deputy chair since Ms. Pfeiffer-Poensgen stood down. The board is now looking forward to working with Dr. Haug as the new chair in the future.
Dr. Haug is one of the most distinguished provenance researchers in Germany and is recognized both at home and abroad. She is a founder member of the provenance research association Arbeitskreis Provenienzforschung e.V. and is currently head of provenance research at the Hamburger Kunsthalle. Dr. Haug has been a member of the board of trustees since it was founded in 2015.
The international board of trustees advises and supports the Foundation Board and the Executive Board in their duties. It currently comprises 11 renowned experts from Germany and abroad.
