Research grants and guest researchers
Thomas Kumlehn – Kleist Fellowship
The Kleist Fellowship 2009 was awarded to art researcher Thomas Kumlehn from Potsdam. He is currently working through the art collection of the Kleist Museum; when his inventory is complete, he will present a scholarly catalogue of the collection. Due to generous support from the Dr. Meyer-Struckmann Foundation, funding is currently available to finance Kleist Fellowships until 2011.
Angelika Vaskinevitch - Kleist-Königsberg Grant
In August/September 2010, Ms. Vaskinevitch will spend time working on research at the Kleist Museum in Frankfurt (Oder), having received the Kleist-Königsberg Grant for scholars at the Russian State Immanuel-Kant-University in Kaliningrad financed by the Marga and Kurt Möllgaard Foundation. Her research concerns Heinrich von Kleist and the time that he spent in Königsberg.
The Kleist Museum is recognised as a training institution by the IHK (Chamber of Industry and Commerce) East Brandenburg.
