The objective of collection management is to protect and preserve the objects in our collections and items on loan to us to the greatest degree possible, as well as to document them and make them available to the public.
As conservators, we work to prevent damage to items in the collection by utilizing the proper packaging and storage in our art depots, and by monitoring the climate, light levels, and pests.
We also strive to exhibit objects without damaging them. We document their condition and identify their materials and techniques. If necessary, we stabilize the materials of individual objects by means of conservation treatments .
As registrars, we coordinate loan conditions and organize on-time art transportation for international loans. In addition, we are the contact point regarding all of the administrative parameters for our exhibitions.
Collection documentation ensures that our collections are correctly registered and indexed, so that our objects and documents can be used for exhibitions and other projects. They should be accessible to researchers, and also available to all other interested parties. Our thesaurus of German-Jewish history allows you to do a targeted search by topic in our objects presented online.
