2019 - Present

Provenance Researcher at NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies

Since November 2019 I am member of the Expert Centre Restitution (ECR) of the NIOD. The Expert Centre conducts research into the history and topicality of looted art and restitution, particularly in relation to the Nazi regime.


Until March 2022 I participated in the Pilotproject Provenance Research on Objects of the Colonial Era (PPROCE). The aim of the project was to do joint scientific research on a few dozen objects from Indonesia and Sri Lanka to identify processes necessary for carrying out provenance research on colonial collections. Check out the results here!
