Blog

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 cultural properties have found their way back to their rightful owners. Researchers and other interested parties are invited to contact the press office with ideas and suggestions for contributions: presse@kulturgutverluste.de
