ANN: Lecture Series: Provenance Research / Provenienzforschung (Saarbruecken, 4 Oct 17-7 Feb 18)

HERKUNFT UNGEWISS? – Kunstwerke und ihre Besitzergeschichte

Öffentliche Ringvorlesung zur Provenienzforschung in Kooperation zwischen der Stiftung Saarländischer Kulturbesitz und dem Institut für Kunstgeschichte der Universität des Saarlandes

Provenienzforschung ist ein zentrales Feld heutiger Museumsarbeit, das sich mit der Eigentumsgeschichte von Kunstwerken und Sammlungsobjekten beschäftigt. Heikle Fälle stellen insbesondere jene Werke dar, die in der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus ihren Besitzern entzogen oder während des Zweiten Weltkrieges geraubt und verlagert wurden. Schwierige Rechtsfragen und berührende persönliche Schicksale kennzeichnen die Arbeit der Provenienzforschung. Aber auch historisch gewachsene archäologische und ethnologische Sammlungen des 19. Jahrhunderts erfordern die Erforschung ihrer ursprünglichen Besitzerverhältnisse.

Die Sonderausstellung „Der Berliner Skulpturenfund“ im Museum für Vor- und Frühgeschichte am Schlossplatz wird auch das Schicksal der Saarbrücker Sammlungen in Krieg und Nationalsozialismus präsentieren. Eine eigene Ringvorlesung in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Institut der Kunstgeschichte der Universität des Saarlandes macht daher gehend das Forschungsfeld der Provenienzforschung einer breiteren Öffentlichkeit zugänglich. Namhafte Experten wie Prof.Dr.Dr.h.c.mult. Hermann Parzinger (Präsident der Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz) und Dr. Andreas Hüneke (Forschungsstelle „Entartete Kunst“ der Freien Universität Berlin) geben Einblicke zu bis heute kriegsbedingt verlagerter Beutekunst in Russland und verfemten Künstlern im Dritten Reich.

STIP: Getty Residential Grants 2018-2019, Los Angeles

Monumentality The Classical World in Context: Persia (Villa)

Getty Research Institute Residential Grants and Fellowships 2018-2019

Application deadline: Oct 2, 2017

The 2018/2019 academic year at the Getty Research Institute will be devoted to MONUMENTALITY. Monuments and the monumental address fundamental questions of art and architectural history such as size and scale. Applicants are encouraged to address monumentality in all of its distinct forms, as embodied by various cultures and powers throughout history. Research trajectories to consider include the role of monumentality as a tool for nation building, the subversive potential of monument making, and the monumental in buildings, sculptures, installations, murals, and even small-scale objects.

The Classical World in Context: Persia (Villa)

For a second year, the 2018/2019 term of the Getty Scholars Program at the Villa will address the political, intellectual, religious, and artistic relations between Persia, Greece, and Rome from the ninth century BC to AD 651. The Greeks viewed the Persian Empire, which reached from the borders of Greece to India, as a vastly wealthy and powerful rival and often as an existential threat. When the Macedonian king Alexander the Great finally defeated the Persians in 331 BC, Greek culture spread throughout the Near East, but native dynasties—first the Parthian (247 BC–AD 224) and then the Sasanian (AD 224–651)—soon reestablished themselves. The rise of the Roman Empire as a world power quickly brought it, too, into conflict with Persia, despite the common trade that flowed through their territories.

Priority will be given to research projects that are cross-cultural and interdisciplinary, and that utilize a wide range of archaeological, textual, and other evidence.
