Going Global: New Challenges in the Field of Provenance Research

organized by Francine Giese (Vitrocentre Romont), Sarah Keller (Vitrocentre Romont), Sarah Tabbal (Vitrocentre Romont) and Daniela Roberts (Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg)


Vitromusée Romont, Switzerland


Provenance research is not only a central field of museum activity, but has also increasingly become the focus of academic research. Since the 2018 report edited by Bénédicte Savoy and Felwine Sarr on the restitution of African artworks from French collections, provenance studies have expanded to include an important new aspect: the question of provenance in colonial contexts. The workshop will provide insights into ongoing research and open the discussion to a wider audience.
