Scholarship at Ben Uri

Ben Uri has, at its core, a commitment to accessible scholarship across various levels of academia. We support our senior curators in their research, particularly focusing on refugee and immigrant artists (either first or second generation), thus furthering their international reputations and enabling them to continue to develop their areas of expertise.

Our research interests reflect Ben Uri/BURU's  focus on Jewish and immigrant artists and designers in Britain since 1900, with a particular emphasis on those who arrived here during the two main waves of Jewish migration (end 19th/early 20th century from the Russian Pale of Settlement - particularly the so-called Whitechapel Boys - Anglo-Jewish modernists associated with London's East End ghetto; and the so-called Hitler emigres who arrived 1933-45). Within these two cohorts, we have each developed research interests across a number of national groups in exile (eg German, Austrian, Polish, Czech) and in a number of individual artists/designers/art historians, some directly connected with Ben Uri.
