Provenance research in the museum
During the last years the Municipal Museum of Leipzig searched for Nazi-confiscated cultural property in different areas of the collection. It is therefore known that the collection contains objects of “suspicious” origin, which is especially true for artworks in the art and crafts collection area. Promoted by the German Lost Art Foundation the museum will systematically examine this collection area to identify cultural objects that have been stolen by the Nazis.
Cultural Diversity and Migration
Under the heading "Cultural Diversity and Migration", the foundation Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung awards scholarships for museums at regular intervals. In cooperation with two other museums, three fellows receive training on specific aspects of museum work for eight months. In the framework of their own projects, they share their expertise regarding cultural diversity and migration in return.
