The research cluster “Translocations” at the Institute for Art History and Historical Urban Studies at the Technische Universität Berlin is seeking to hire two postdoctoral researchers for its team. The project is funded through the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz-Prize of the DFG, awarded to Prof. Dr. Bénédicte Savoy in 2016. The research cluster will study large-scale displacements of cultural assets from antiquity to the 20th century such as: art theft and spoliation organized by the state in times of war and occupation, seizure of cultural goods during colonialism, displacements as a result of a partition of excavation discoveries or research expeditions, material diaspora of entire civilizations expedited by the art trade, and confiscations justified through ideology, nationalization, or en masse disposal of private property. The key objective of “Translocations” is to compile a comprehensive selection of historical findings in order to deliver orientation and direction for dealing with the challenges posed by this topic now and in the future. For further information on the research cluster see www.kuk.tu-berlin.de/menue/translocations/parameter/en.
