State­ment on the war in Ukraine

As a rese­arch net­work, the Arbeits­kreis Pro­ve­ni­enz­for­schung e.V. stands for inde­pen­dent, inter­con­nec­ted and trans­na­tio­nal rese­arch that oppo­ses racism, anti­se­mi­tism, per­se­cu­ti­on, war and vio­lence as well as the loo­ting, dis­pla­ce­ment and dest­ruc­tion of cul­tu­ral heritage. 

In light of this, we join the many cul­tu­ral insti­tu­ti­ons and asso­cia­ti­ons in cal­ling for an immedia­te end to the war in Ukraine. 

We stand in soli­da­ri­ty with the suf­fe­ring Ukrai­ni­an peop­le and all tho­se who, in the face of this life-threa­tening situa­ti­on, are figh­t­ing to pre­ser­ve cul­tu­ral assets.
