Apply Now: German/American Provenance Research Exchange Program (PREP) 2019

 Call for Applications

The application deadline has been pushed to October 14 for the 2019 leg of Provenance Research Exchange Program (PREP), which gathers Museums Professionals in the USA and Germany.

The attachment contains information about the Program and a link to the application for 2019 — which will be its third and last year.

PREP is a unique program that was created to think strategically and collaboratively about Holocaust-era provenance research, and to foster transatlantic networking.

The Program was hosted by The Met and the Berlin State Museums in 2017; the 2018 participants went to the Getty Research Institute in February and will meet again in Munich in October, where PREP will be hosted by the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte.

In 2019, the new cohort of PREP participants will be hosted by the Dresden State Art Collections in the spring, and the Smithsonian Institution in DC in the fall.

For both week-long trips (Dresden and Washington DC), participants’ flight, room and board are covered by a German Government grant funded by the German Program for Transatlantic Encounters.

The organizing and partnering institutions of the German/American Provenance Research Exchange Program (PREP) for Museum Professionals, 2017-2019, announce the third and final year of the interdisciplinary exchange program for German and US museum professionals engaged with Nazi-era art provenance research—curators, collections managers, archivists, researchers, lawyers, and IT experts museum professionals—to consider how best to facilitate and collaborate on international research projects, and increase the transparency of its resources and results.

This year, the third and final of PREP’s program, will feature two Exchanges:

  • PREP-Dresden Exchange, hosted by the Dresden State Art Museums (March 17-22, 2019)
  • PREP-Washington, DC Exchange, hosted by the Smithsonian Institution (October 20-26, 2019)

Applications for 2019  will be open through September 28, 2019.  The program will cover travel, lodging, and meals for the 21 applicants whom PREP’s steering committee will select to participate in both Exchanges. Selection announcements will go out mid-November 2018.

PREP is co-organized by the Smithsonian Institution and the Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz (Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation/Berlin State Museums). Its five partner institutions are the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Getty Research Institute in LA, the Dresden State Art Collections, the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte (ZI) in Munich, and the German Center for Lost Art in Magdeburg.

PREP launched in 2017 with the 1st Exchange at the Met in New York, and the corresponding, 2nd Exchange was at the Berlin State Museums. The 3rd Exchange was at the Getty Research Institute in LA., and the 4th PREP Exchange will be at the Central Institute for Art History (ZI) in Munich, October 8-12, 2019.

Major support for PREP comes through a German government grant funded by the German Program for Transatlantic Encounters, with additional financial support from Germany’s Federal Commission for Culture and Media, the program’s six key partners, and the Smithsonian Women’s Committee.
