Exh: Between Definite and Dubious, Liebieghaus, Frankfurt a.M., until 27 Aug 2017

THE EXHIBITION

TICKETS

This spring, the Liebieghaus Skulpturensammlung will take a look back at a chapter in its history that has rarely been a focus of attention to date: the Nazi period and the acquisitions made during those years. With the aid of twelve selected objects, the exhibition will offer insights into the history of the museum in the years 1933 to 1945 and tell the stories of the people intimately linked with the twelve works. Since 2001, the Städel Museum has been examining its collections with regard to artworks whose owners were deprived of them in connection with Nazi persecution. It was thus one of the first museums in Germany to embark on this task.

In the spring of 2015, its provenance research activities were expanded through the addition of a comprehensive project supported by the German Lost Art Foundation and the city of Frankfurt am Main: the systematic examination of the Liebieghaus Skulpturensammlung holdings. The special exhibition will now present this initiative’s current research results by way of a tour through the sculpture collection’s three main departments – Antiquity, Middle Ages and Renaissance to Neoclassicism.

The fifth workshop of Forum Kunst und Markt/Center for Art Market Studies investigates the intervention of politics into the dealings of the art trade in a global perspective: What opportunities do the art markets gain and lose in different political systems and the resulting diverse forms of government (monarchy, dictatorship, democracy etc.)? Which authorities and institutions are involved in specifying the political guidelines and measures? How are these institutions specifically involved and what are the consequences for the trade? How do the art markets react to these acts of state control and intervention?
