Research at AdA

AdA supports international research projects in closer and broader relation to the Archiv der Avantgarden. Besides their own research activities (e.g. in cooperation with other institutions of the SKD or with academic and research institutions), these are mostly projects secured by third-party funding. Partners are research institutions, museums and universities in Germany and abroad.
