Berlin, 3 July 2017, 7.00pm: First meeting of TIAMSA’s Berlin sub-committee

Christine Howald and Anne Luther proudly announce the launch of TIAMSA’s Berlin sub-committee and cordially invite to the first meeting on 3 July 2017, 7.00pm at the Centre for Art Market Studies, Technische Universität Berlin, Straße des 17. Juni 150/152, 10623 Berlin (the building standing at the corner of March-Straße), Room AF083. The TIAMSA Berlin subcommittee welcomes members who are based in Berlin or nearby and who would like to contribute to a lively and scholarly discourse on art and its market. Our first casual meet-and-greet is hosted by the Centre for Art Market Studies at the Technische Universität Berlin and is also open to those who consider joining TIAMSA. – The sub-committee will organize visits to sites relevant for the study of the art market (galleries, archives, libraries, museums, etc.) and mobilize our members coming from both academia and the art market to meet on a regular basis. It aims to uncover relationships between historical research, contemporary art markets as well as institutions and businesses. Members will introduce their know-how and are invited to host discussion groups, talks, round tables and visits at their sites with a topic of their choice related to their field of expertise. Please let us know if you would like to attend, we are very much looking forward to seeing you.​ Herzliche Grüße! Anne and Christine
