TIAMSA welcomes the establishment of sub-committees as they are a great way of exploring specific themes or providing local access to art market studies! There are many possibilities for activities (gatherings, field trips, lectures, seminars, etc.) and many sensible approaches (regular or irregular gatherings, larger or smaller groups, etc.). The TIAMSA board takes a very liberal approach to sub-committees, so their programming is really up to those who run them. TIAMSA is happy to provide an individual web-page for each sub-committee and to circulate planned events through its blog.
Below is a list of the sub-committees that have already been proposed or established. We invite you to contact the named individuals if you want to join or get involved (click the names to open an e-mail link). As a rule, Sub-Committees’ events should only be open to TIAMSA members or those who are seriously considering becoming one.

Berlin: Christine Howald, Research Associate | Teaching Fellow “Art Market and Provenance”, Department for Modern Art History, Institute of Art Studies and Historical Urban Studies at TU Berlin and Anne Luther, Research Associate at the Department for Modern Art History, Institute of Art Studies and Historical Urban Studies at TU Berlin.
Statement: The TIAMSA Berlin subcommittee welcomes members who are based in Berlin or nearby. It 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 join the group. Herzliche Grüße! Anne and Christine
