Sammlungsgeschichten: Islamische Kunst im Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (1873–1915)
Collection Histories. Islamic Art at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (1873–1915) looks at the paths taken by works from West and Central Asia into the museum. Eleven studies illuminate the interests of the MK&G founding director Justus Brinckmann, trace his acquisitions, and look at the biographies of individual objects – including a Quran manuscript or tiles from a mausoleum in Bukhara. The focus lies on the relations of local and global networks with the history of the art market.
