Curatorial Meeting on Provenance Research, Association of European Jewish Museums, October 14 2020, 3 PM (CET)

We kindly invite you to join our online meeting on the topic of provenance research which will be organized on Wednesday, 14 October, 3:00 – 4:30 PM CET by Christina Meri (Jewish Museum of Greece). This meeting is intended for museum curators and all interested parties.

It will deal with the issue of provenance research and its ever-growing relevance for our museums: What do the evolving insights in reconstruction and the improving opportunities to do online research into provenance of objects in our collections mean for our curatorial work?

The meeting consists of two parts:

During the first part of the online meeting, we will get insights into provenance research projects conducted at Jewish museums, by Linda Wiesner (Jewish Museum Frankfurt): „Many Questions, few Answers: Provenance Research on Judaica Objects. Case Studies from the Jewish Museum Frankfurt“ and Dr. Anna Augustin (formerly Jewish Museum Berlin) “Tracing Judaica Provenances, Exploring Contexts: Insights into Everyday Research with and without Objects”.

In the second part of the online meeting, starting at 4:00 PM, we want to investigate the possibility to establish a joint project on Judaica research, offered to AEJM and associated members. Main goal of the enterprise will be the establishment of a “lost-and-found” database regarding Jewish material culture. This extended database will not be restricted to objects only, but include materials like photos, books, archival material and links to relevant sources. Julie-Marthe Cohen (Jewish Historical Museum Amsterdam) will give a hands-on-introduction to the use of the museological database which is to be modified according to the needs of the interested parties.

Registration for the online meeting is appreciated, please find the registration form here.
