Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte
The institute resides in the former administration building of the National Socialist party near Königsplatz in Munich.
The institute is supported by the Bavarian State Ministry of Sciences, Research and Art and supervised by an international board of trustees.
It defines itself as both a place of academic exchange and a platform for international encounters. It organizes lectures and symposia and edits various art history publications, for instance, the Reallexikon zur Deutschen Kunstgeschichte and the Kunstchronik, an art journal featuring articles on museum matters, important exhibitions and art historical conferences, and the preservation of monuments and historic buildings.
