The Museum für Islamische Kunst in cooperation with the Zentralarchiv of the Staatlichen Museen, Berlin and the Institute of Art History and Musicology at Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz will host a workshop titled,“ Acquisitions and Provenance of Islamic Art between 1933-1945: Current Research and Networking.” on the 13th and 14th of October 2023.
This workshop represents a pioneering initiative among researchers both within and beyond public collections in Germany. It aims to facilitate discussions about the challenges associated with tracing the provenance for objects of Islamic art history and to present ongoing projects in the field. The workshop seeks to identify parallels in collecting practices and object biographies in comparison with non-European collection contexts.
We cordially invite you to participate in this two-day workshop to be conducted in German. A detailed program can be found in the attached document. Please note that due to limited seating capacity, we kindly request your registration by the 10th of October 2023, via firstname.lastname@example.org. For the public evening lecture in English, no prior registration is necessary.
We look forward to two stimulating days of presentations. With further inquiries, please contact email@example.com.
