From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki




Birgit Dahlenburg, née Handschel[1] (16 April 1959 – 29 January 2017) was a German art historian. She worked as custodian for the art collections of the University of Greifswald and was instrumental in digitalising art.

Life[edit]

Born in Heldburg, Dahlenburg studied German studies, art history and art didactics at the University of Greifswald.[2] She received her doctorate in art history there in 1986 with a dissertation on the history of romantic art in Northern Germany.[3] She worked as a research assistant for the Chair of Contemporary Art History from 1987.[3]

From 1988 to 1989 Dahlenburg was head of the graphics department at the Kunstsammlungen Zwickau [de].[2] In 1989 she was appointed university curator and director of the Academic Art Collection of the university, where she was also a research assistant for the university's chair of Neuere Kunstgeschichte des Caspar-David-Friedrich-Instituts für Kunst und Kunstwissenschaft.[3] She organised exhibitions and published books about treasures of the collection, such as the Croÿ-Teppich [de] (Croy carpet) and the Pommersche Fischerteppiche [de] (Fishers' carpets). The Croÿ-Teppich was included in the list of National wertvolles Kulturgut (Cultural heritage of national value), due to her efforts.[4]

From 2013 Dahlenburg was a member of the board of the Digicult [de]-Verbund eG, a cooperative society which has set itself the goal of long-term safeguarding cultural heritage through digital recording and distribution.[5] In addition, she was an active member of the German Museum Association, the International Council of Museums (ICOM) and the Coordination Office for Scientific Collections in Germany.[5]

Dahlenburg died in Greifswald at age 57.[2][4]
