Dear Madam or Sir,
The Jewish Museum Vienna is currently planning an exhibition about Jewish pop and jazz musicians. The working title is “Tops of Jewish Pops,” and it will take place from March to October 2016. It is being organized by Marcus G. Patka (curator), Alfred Stalzer (curator, press and PR), and Edek Bartz (music producer). It is hoped that it will also be shown in other cities in Europe and perhaps also in North America. This depends amongst other things on the loan status of the objects.
We are therefore writing to ask whether you would be willing to lend us objects relating to Joe Dassin, such as stage costumes, musical instruments, personal memorabilia, photos, records, or newspaper cuttings (headlines). The Jewish Museum Vienna would, of course, conclude a loan contract with you, and the items would be insured.
We would like particularly to be able to present Joe Dassin prominently in the exhibition.
