Save the date: panel discussion and digital conference "Die Peripherie im Zentrum", 13-15 November 2022

This November, the German Lost Art Foundation is once again holding its annual autumn conference: the digital conference entitled Die Peripherie im Zentrum. Vergessenes, Verdrängtes und Vernachlässigtes in der Provenienzforschung (“The periphery at the centre. What gets forgotten, repressed and neglected in provenance research”) on 14 and 15 November will focus on provenance research beyond the major cities and institutions – in the countryside, in border regions and in smaller museums. The focus is not on prominent works of art but on the frequently neglected objects such as household effects and belongings that were stolen from persecuted Jewish citizens during the National Socialist era. Rather than looking at the role of high-ranking National Socialist functionaries, light will be cast on the work done by museum curators in the provinces, for example. One particular focus will be on persecuted groups that have received little attention to date.
