#FragtDieProvenienzForscher_innen: A Participatory Call to Action for the 3rd International Day of Provenance Research


On 14 April 2021, the international Day of Provenance Research is taking place for third time. That day the provenance researchers of the Zentralarchiv (Central Archive), Staatliche Museen Berlin, will be discussing the diverse perspectives, methods and challenges associated with their fields of research: colonial contexts, cultural assets that changed possession as a result of National Socialist persecution, and the cross-cutting subject of archaeological objects. Visitors are invited to participate.

A Call to Get Involved: What do visitors find interesting?

The provenance research team wants to make research more transparent and to know what actually interests visitors. In the lead-up to the event, the Berlin-Dahlem team is asking for your questions, which you can send in via their Twitter channel @PPR_Dahlem under the hashtag #FragtDieProvenienzForscher_innen. During the event, interested participants will also be connected via live chat and can pose their questions.
