Requesting loans

Loan a book to exhibit it? Find out how to request a loan.

Send an e-mail to request a loan for an exhibition.

Provide the catalogue number, the full title and the author’s full name for every work. Don’t forget to state the name and location of your institution, as well as the start and end dates of your exhibition and your contact details.

We will check whether there are no problems with the loans you requested and will then send you forms which you must fill in and return to us digitally.

If your request is approved, we will send you information about the dimensions, the angle under which the materials may/must be exhibited, their insured value, the required temperature and moisture levels and the restrictions in terms of exposure and lighting.

Please note that you must send us your application at least four months before the opening of your exhibition as the approval procedure takes longer for precious works.
