Jewish Art Historians in Munich

An exhibition in the Study Area at the Jewish Museum Munich

As part of the doctorate program “Exhibition Concept, Design, and Mediation,” at the Institute of Art History at Ludwig Maximilian Universtiy, Munich, in collaboration with the Jewish Museum Munich, ten students have researched the biographies of 20 Jewish art historians who had links with Munich.

With this exhibition, the students in the project group draw attention to a generation of Jewish art historians and the stories of their lives, their work, and their contribution to art history. As Jews, they were excluded from German history; as art historians they should be brought back into the collective memory in their specialist field.

All of them made a valuable contribution to art history in their areas of research, as presented and honored here in this exhibition.

The exhibition is divided into two parts:
Part I: October 6–December 12, 2010
Part II: December 14, 2010–March 6, 2011
