    Social Media Event
    “BOUGHT. COLLECTED. LOOTED?

    Wednesday, 5th September, 6.30pm
    Meeting point: Historisches Museum Frankfurt, Saalhof 1, 60311 Frankfurt am Main


    Four Frankfurt museums teamed up for the exhibition collaboration “BOUGHT. COLLECTED. LOOTED? How things came to the museum”. Together, the Historisches Museum, the Museum Angewandte Kunst, the Museum Judengasse and the Weltkulturen Museum invite you to a Social Media Event. The exhibitions in the four houses investigate traces of legalized theft in their own collections. They are about provenance research, restitution and stories about “difficult things”. At our Social Media Event you will have the opportunity to get to know two of the exhibitions. Get surprised which exhibitions you´ll see!


    You are active on social media, you want to network and exchange about the exhibitions online? Then please contact us by email at presse.angewandte-kunst@stadt-frankfurt.de.
    Participation is free, but places are limited. Snacks and drinks are provided. Please note that you will have to walk smaller distances during the event.

    This exhibition is part of a cooperation with the Historisches Museum Frankfurt, the Museum Judengasse, the Museum Angewandte Kunst and the Fritz-Bauer-Institut. These exhibitions are on display until 14th October 2018.


    Funded by the Frankfurt Department of Cultural Affairs Cooperation Fund. The HR supports the project as a media partner.

    EXHIBITION TOUR
    “COLLECTED. BOUGHT. LOOTED? Case Studies from a Colonial and National Socialist Context”
    With Alessa Sänger
    EXHIBITION TOUR

    “COLLECTED. BOUGHT. LOOTED? Case Studies from a Colonial and National Socialist Context”


    Alessa Sänger will guide through the exhibition and give insights into the working and research process.


    How did ancestor figures from Nias off the western coast of Sumatra enter the European art market in the early twentieth century? Why could the museum buy objects rather ‘cheaply’ in Paris and Amsterdam in the early 1940s? Is a weapon belt from South Africa war booty?


    These are just some of the questions arising from a critical review of the Weltkulturen Museum’s collection.
    Further information about the exhibition here.



     



    7€ / 3,50€. Costs of tour included in admission fee

    TALK
    “Looted art or not?”
    With Bas van Lier (author and journalist, Amsterdam)

    TALK


    “Looted art or not?”
    With Bas van Lier (author and journalist, Amsterdam)






    In April 1941 the Städtisches Völkermuseum in Frankfurt bought 61 ethnographic objects from the Dutch Jewish art dealer Carel van Lier in Amsterdam. Part of this collection was recuperated after the war by the Dutch State. Van Lier’s grandson, writer and journalist Bas van Lier, issued a claim in 2006 and finally was given back one object, an ivory hunting horn from Congo. In his lecture he will elaborate on the backgrounds of his claim and the dilemmas around looted art.

    WORKSHOP WITH EXHIBITION TOUR

    “What’s that doing here?”


    Why and how did the exhibits come into the Weltkulturen Museum collection? In the exhibition COLLECTED. BOUGHT. LOOTED? we look at the origins of objects on show whose provenance is interwoven with colonial history or the history of the Nazi era in Germany.


    Further information about the exhibition here.
