Mag. Dr. Christian Klösch

Head of Department

With the Vienna Technical Museum since:

April 2005

My duties include:

Under the provisions of the 1998 Art Restitution Act, all federal museums are required to return any exhibits which, under Nazi rule, were taken from their original owners.
On behalf of the Commission for Provenance Research I am responsible for checking historical and current acquisitions made by the Technisches Museum Wien.
Besides historical research my duties also include contacting the rightful owners and organising the restitution.

I am also involved in a number of scientific research projects at the Technisches Museum, focusing specifically on the history of transport.
