Hochpreisphase.
Das Berliner Auktionshaus Hans W. Lange 1940-1943

Abstract: Am 11. August 1937 ging das Berliner Auktionshaus Paul Graupe an den langjährigen Mitarbeiter Hans W. Lange (1904–1945) über, per Vertrag von Graupe in der Schweiz gegengezeichnet. Für Lange begann damit zu Zeiten des Nationalsozialismus eine Laufbahn, die 35 Auktionen unter seinem Namen umfasste. Als Beitrag zu den Fragen an das Kunstmarktgeschehen im Nationalsozialismus, die den Bedarf sowohl an empirischen Daten als auch an historischer Analyse zeigen, erprobt der Vortrag eine „detaillierte Auseinandersetzung mit verschiedenen Faktoren“, wie sie etwa Fuhrmeister/Hopp unlängst forderten. Empirische Grundlage des Vortrages ist eine quantitative Übersicht zu den Preisen, die von der Firma Hans W. Lange in diesen Auktionen erzielt wurden. Das Verhältnis der Erlöse zu den Schätzungen zeigt hierbei, dass seit Ende 1940 eine Hochpreisphase zu erkennen ist. Anhand qualitativer Stichproben – wer kauft wann was warum? – wird im Vortrag das Käuferverhalten unter die Lupe genommen. Es kann dabei gezeigt werden, wie sich nicht nur die Nachfrage nach Sujets, die Distribution durch den Handel sowie divergierende und potente Privatsammlerinteressen auf das Auktionsergebnis auswirkten, sondern auch offensichtlich instrumentierte Preisfiktionen, Machtgefüge und die Aktivitäten ehrgeiziger, gut ausgestatteter weiterer „Player“ sowie ein unkoordinierter Einsatz der Staats- und Parteimittel die Preisbildung beeinflussten.

Sie arbeitet als unabhängige Wissenschaftlerin in Berlin, wo sie seit 2006 Material zum Auktionshaus Hans W. Lange (1937-1945) sammelt. Grundsätzliches Interesse an Verfahren der Entziehung sowie der Sozialgeschichte der Akteure führte zu einer intensiveren Beschäftigung mit dem Kunsthandel, mit der Reichskunstkammer und den Bedingungen und Wechselwirkungen am Kunstmarkt, wozu sie mehrfach publiziert hat.

Workshop: Exhibition Databases

From 14th to 16th June 2018, the research project “Exhibitions of Modern European Paintings 1905-1915” will be hosting a workshop in Vienna. In this project we are building an open-access database compiling exhibitions and all accompanying information that showed modern painting, mainly in Europe, between 1905 and 1915. The objective of the database is to visualise and thus trace the chronology and geography of new art forms and “-isms” that were, at the beginning of the 20th century, often founded within and/or spread via the context of art exhibitions. The database will be accessible online by the end of 2018. The project is directed by Prof. Raphael Rosenberg at the Department of Art History of the University of Vienna, and is funded by the Austrian Science Fund. For further details please visit exhibitions.univie.ac.at. Continue reading “CFP: Exhibition Databases (Vienna, 14-16 Jun 18)”

Routes and Contact Zones. Artistic Mobility and Exchange in Central Eastern and North Eastern Europe

Deadline: Mar 5, 2018

German and Polish versions of this text available online, see reference link below

Working Group of German and Polish Art Historians and Conservators
Art History Institute, Ludwig-Maximilian-University Munich
Böckler-Mare-Balticum-Foundation

26. Conference of the Working Group of German and Polish Art Historians and Conservators / Homburger Colloquy (Homburger Gespräch) of the Böckler-Mare-Balticum-Foundation, Munich 11.-13. October 2018

The mobility of people, objects and ideas determined the art scene in Central Eastern and North Eastern Europe for centuries and promoted transregional exchange. In contrast, art historiography in the countries of these regions has long been influenced by nationally defined political concepts that posit clearly distinct cultural developments. If, however, art is understood as a product of cross-border, transcultural exchange, then any scholarly investigation must also consider the transfer routes and the meeting places found along them.
