Media Library

The media library contains all the Foundation’s publications along with documentation of the events it has organised. The blog includes reviews and articles from scholarly practice, for example. Here you will also find explanatory videos on questions of provenance research.

Cover "Provenire" volume 2
The German Lost Art Foundation publishes three series: the periodical “Provenance & Research” appears once a year, scholarly articles are published in the series “Provenire”, and the series “Working Paper Deutsches Zentrum Kulturgutverluste” features articles on current research topics published in open access. This section also contains the publications produced by the former Koordinierungsstelle (Coordination Office) Magdeburg.
In our blog, we provide insights into the projects we support, present important new publications and exhibitions on the subject of provenance research, report on conferences, and talk about how previously looted items of cultural property have found their way back to their rightful owners.
