The Koordinationsstelle Provenienzforschung in North Rhine-Westphalia (KPF.NRW) is a central service and advisory office established in November 2020 by the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia in cooperation with the two regional associations of the Rhineland and Westphalia-Lippe. Located at LVR-LandesMuseum Bonn, it began its work on 1 January 2022 under the direction of Jasmin Hartmann. As a practical hub, the KPF.NRW will focus on provenance relating to confiscations that occurred as a result of National Socialist persecution, in the former Soviet occupation zone (SBZ) and the German Democratic Republic (GDR) as well as during the colonial period. In North Rhine-Westphalia, the institution will serve all museums, libraries and archives, as well as private individuals, the art trade and the community in the field of provenance research.
