4th Inter­na­tio­nal Pro­ven­an­ce Rese­arch Day 2022 – Rese­ar­ching ori­gin in muse­ums, libra­ries and archives

Today, on April 13, 2022, the Inter­na­tio­nal Pro­ven­an­ce Rese­arch Day will take place for the fourth time. So far, more than 120 insti­tu­ti­ons in Ger­ma­ny, Fran­ce, Ita­ly, the Nether­lands, Aus­tria, Switz­er­land and the USA have regis­tered their participation.

This year, muse­ums, libra­ries and other (collec­tion-mana­ging) insti­tu­ti­ons are again offe­ring a lar­ge num­ber of face-to-face events. Howe­ver, online for­mats con­ti­nue to form an inte­gral part of the event pro­gram. As in pre­vious years, nume­rous participants/participating insti­tu­ti­ons have deve­lo­ped new for­mats for their events in order to reach the widest pos­si­ble audi­ence. This year, many rese­ar­chers from various insti­tu­ti­ons are com­ing tog­e­ther to col­la­bo­ra­te on their events. They illus­tra­te the suc­cess­ful efforts of the Arbeits­kreis Pro­ve­ni­enz­for­schung e.V. towards trans­pa­ren­cy and net­wor­king wit­hin the sci­en­ti­fic community.

The wide-ran­ging pro­gram with more than 100 events and more than 260 par­ti­ci­pa­ting indi­vi­du­als is pri­ma­ri­ly dedi­ca­ted to topics from the are­as of Nazi per­se­cu­ti­on-rela­ted sei­zu­res (75), cul­tu­ral assets from colo­ni­al con­texts (33) and the histo­ry of collec­tions in gene­ral (68). The day will be accom­pa­nied by Twit­ter: #Tagd­er­Pro­ve­ni­enz­for­schung
