Professorship for Provenance Studies

Organisational unit: Section

Organisation profile

Research and teaching in Provenance Studies at Leuphana cover the areas of provenance, restitution, and critical museum and art market studies. In addition to examining the past, present, and future of provenance and its production, we focus primarily on the institutional frameworks in which art is collected and exhibited. Here, we are particularly interested in the role of museums in the acquisition, archiving, display, and circulation of objects. To answer these questions, we also use digital tools and explore their relevance for provenance research and art history.
