Organised by the Centre for Art Market Studies at TU Berlin in cooperation with the Forum Transregionale Studien, Berlin, and its research programme Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices

Technische Universität Berlin / 16.-17. Nov. 2017
Forum Transregionale Studien / 18. Nov. 2017

The history of state or public museums has been the focus of numerous symposiums and publications. Yet astonishingly little research has taken private museums in consideration, even though the number of private art museums has risen dramatically over the past two decades. According to the International Council of Museums (ICOM), there are now more private museum spaces in the world than public ones. The majority of these museums are in China, South Korea, the US and Germany, though private museums have been established also in Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Egypt, France, India, Indonesia, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine, among other countries.

At this year’s international symposium of the Centre for Art Market Studies at TU Berlin – organised in cooperation with the Forum Transregionale Studien and its research programme Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices – participants will be exploring the background, mechanisms and consequences of a phenomenon that may be referred to as the „global power of private museums“.

Convenors:

  • Technische Universität Berlin: Bénédicte Savoy (Fachgebiet Kunstgeschichte der Moderne / Collège de France, Paris), Dorothee Wimmer (Forum Kunst und Markt / Centre for Art Market Studies)
  • Julia Voss (Fellow of the Lichtenberg Kolleg, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen / Leuphana Universität Lüneburg)
  • Forum Transregionale Studien: Hannah Baader (Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices / Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz), Georges Khalil

Organisiert vom Forum Kunst und Markt/Centre for Art Market Studies an der TU Berlin in Kooperation mit dem Forum Transregionale Studien, Berlin und seinem Forschungs- programm Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices

Technische Universität Berlin / 16.-17. Nov. 2017
Forum Transregionale Studien / 18. Nov. 2017

Während die Geschichte des öffentlichen Museums Gegenstand zahlreicher Tagungen und Publikationen geworden ist, wurde die des Privatmuseums bisher erstaunlich wenig erforscht. Und dies, obwohl die Zahl der privaten Kunstmuseen in den vergangenen zwei Jahrzehnten dramatisch gestiegen ist. Laut ICOM (International Council of Museums) gibt es inzwischen weltweit mehr private als öffentliche Museumsinstitutionen. Die Mehrzahl davon befindet sich in den Vereinigten Staaten, Südkorea, Deutschland und China. Neugründungen sind aber auch in Ägypten, Brasilien, Dänemark, Frankreich, Indien, Indonesien, Kanada, Russland, in der Türkei und der Ukraine erfolgt, um nur einige Länger zu nennen.

Im diesjährigen internationalen Symposium des Forums Kunst und Markt / Centre for Art Market Studies an der TU Berlin, das in Kooperation mit dem Forum Transregionale Studien und seinem Forschungsprogramm Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices stattfindet, soll nach den Hintergründen, Mechanismen und Folgen des Phänomens der „global power of private museums“ gefragt werden.

Veranstalter:

  • Technische Universität Berlin: Bénédicte Savoy (Fachgebiet Kunstgeschichte der Moderne / Collège de France, Paris), Dorothee Wimmer (Forum Kunst und Markt / Centre for Art Market Studies)
  • Julia Voss (Fellow of the Lichtenberg Kolleg, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen / Leuphana Universität Lüneburg)
  • Forum Transregionale Studien: Hannah Baader (Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices / Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz), Georges Khalil
