Moderna Museet Stockholm, the Goethe Institute and Jewish Culture in Sweden invite you to an international public conference at the Goethe Institute in Stockholm on 20–21 September.
The aim is to highlight the process, perspectives and current challenges and difficulties relating to provenance research and restitution at Swedish, German and other European museums. The existing commissions in Austria, France, Germany and the Netherlands deal with restitution demands in different ways. This is the background against we will attempt to discuss the so-called Limbach Commission’s activities.
This summer, the Swedish media have focused on the insufficient provenance research at Swedish museums. Daniel Birnbaum, director of Moderna Museet, has recommended that the government appoint an independent commission. He and Olle Granath, former director of Moderna Museet and the Nationalmuseum, have drawn up a draft proposal for how this commission could operate.
