Art Restitution & Holocaust Memorialization in Austria 


Decades after the Holocaust, international organizations, countries, museums, collectors, and researchers face the difficult task of tracing art, uncovering the human stories and significance of these precious items - and sometimes, successfully restoring them to their rightful owners or heirs. Pia Schölnberger (Federal Chancellery of Austria) is responsible for a variety of different projects including provenance research which helps trace looted items from victims of National Socialism. Austria’s art restitution law has resulted in the restitution of more than 62,000 objects. In this interactive, illustrated talk, Dr. Schölnberger will explore select cases of recovery and restitution, bringing life to the narratives of individuals and objects, and share why these efforts remain central to 21st century Austrian governments and leaders, and relevant to us today.

Restitution in an Age of Discovery
 

Millions of victims of Nazi genocide were separated from their families, homes and belongings. Decades later provenance researchers face the difficult task of uncovering the roots of these sometimes-invaluable items.

Since 1998, Austria is the only country in the world to implement a legal framework supporting art restitution. The enaction of this law has resulted in the restitution of more than 62,000 objects to their rightful owners or heirs. The work restitution organizations and institutions are doing to uncover the histories of these priceless pieces enables us to discover the human stories and significance behind these important items of history and in some cases, restore them to their rightful owners. Dr. Pia Schölnberger, who currently works in the arts and culture section at the Federal Chancellery of Austria, joins Dr. Sara Angel, Founder and Executive Director of the Art Canada Institute, for an insightful conversation exploring select cases of restitution and recovery.
