The records comprise oral histories conducted with artists and curators about the Swiss curator Harald Szeemann, whose archive
is in the Special Collections of the Getty Research Institute. Records date from 2016 to 2017 and include digital video interviews
as well as transcripts and translations for select interviews.
The Getty Research Institute (GRI) is an operating program of the J. Paul Getty Trust, a not-for-profit educational, cultural
and philanthropic organization dedicated to the visual arts. Originally established in 1983 as the Getty Center for the History
of Art and the Humanities (GCHAH), the objective of the GCHAH was to foster advanced research in art, its history, diversity,
and meaning in culture by engaging scholars from various disciplines in the humanities. In 1996, in order to avoid confusion
with the soon-to-open Getty Center, the GCHAH was renamed the Getty Research Institute for the History of Art and the Humanities
and in 2000, the program's name was shortened to the Getty Research Institute (GRI).
