Applications are now being accepted for the 2017 German/American Provenance Research Exchange Program (PREP) for Museum Professionals. PREP is the first systematic, international exchange program for art museum professionals (curators, provenance researchers, archivists, lawyers, and specialists in digital humanities) and graduate students who focus on World War II-era provenance projects. Each year a cohort of ten German and ten American participants will attend two week-long Exchanges to share their areas of expertise, to explore research resources and methodologies, and to create a collaborative network of provenance research professionals. In 2017, PREP participants will be hosted by The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (February 5-10) and the Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz in Berlin (September 24-29). Please contact or with any questions about PREP or the application process. Applications will be accepted until November 18, 2016.
