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

Information on all events on the Provenance Research Day can be found on the website of the Arbeitskreis Provenienzforschung e.V.: https://www.arbeitskreis-provenienzforschung.org/veranstaltungen/.
