We share Arthur Langerman’s conviction that anti-Jewish images strongly influence the perception of Jews and play a major role in the spread of antisemitism. They are both an expression of and catalyst for antisemitism. For this reason we believe that intensified research on this topic can lead to new insights that can contribute to both the analytical understanding of and the fight against antisemitism. Thus, a central goal of the Arthur Langerman Foundation is to promote and support research into visual antisemitism.
On one hand, ALAVA itself conducts basic research into the phenomenon of visual antisemitism. On one hand, ALAVA itself conducts basic research into the phenomenon of visual antisemitism. Future archive users should receive the most detailed information possible about our varied holdings and their background.
On the other hand, ALAVA initiates and supports projects that are dedicated to researching the Langerman Collection and the history of visual antisemitism. In this context, we encourage undergraduate students as well as doctoral and post-doctoral candidates to use the ALAVA collection for their research and offer them assistance in refining research-relevant questions and in finding appropriate supervisors.
In addition, we seek international cooperation and innovative research approaches in both the analogue and digital areas and plan to hold regular conferences and workshops dealing with themes related to visual antisemitism.
