Loan Policy:

  • The Josep Bosch Collection is based in Geneva, Switzerland, and its items can be provided on loan to other institutions worldwide.
  • A loan refers to a temporary physical transfer of an item in the collection without transfer of ownership and under certain conditions.
  • The Collection lends items for non-commercial purposes, mainly public exhibition, to institutions such as museums, galleries, civic centres, universities, cultural foundations, etc with the purpose of making the collection more widely accessible to the public, for learning, enjoyment, further historical knowledge, understanding and appreciation of history, design, journalism, printing and publishing of newspapers, and to enhance the reputation of the Collection.
  • The length of each loan is specified at the time of the agreement and will generally not exceed one year. Transferral or forwarding to other institutions is possible but must be agreed beforehand with the owners of the Collection.
  • We will normally charge a fee for a loan depending on the quantity of items and the length of the exhibition. All the costs relating to the loan must be borne by the borrower. We expect the borrower to cover the packing and shipping expenses, the insurance of the objects according to the appropriate value established by the Collection, the framing --if necessary--, the security and all the relevant costs of the exhibition of the items. Insurance --door to door-- must cover the shipment, the exhibition and the return of the items.
  • We require the borrower to provide adequate and acceptable level of care, security and safekeeping of the items, taking into account proper conservation and environmental requirements to avoid any damage. Indemnity in case of damage, destruction or theft must be provided by the insurer or by the borrower. The items must be housed and exhibit according to professional standards. Items should be protected from extremes of temperature, humidity, insects and dirt. Since newspapers are very light-sensitive, they should be protected from light in accordance with our guidelines and acceptable standards.
  • Credit to the Collection should be given when exhibiting the newspapers or in the case of the publication of a catalogue.
