Looters, Smugglers, and Collectors: Provenance Research and the Market

250,00 kr

Looters, Smugglers, and Collectors: Provenance Research and the Market seeks to broaden our understanding of provenance research to include consideration of the artwork's social life - that is to say the social and societal constructs through which art moves and the obliterating consequences of contemporary looting for cultural existence. This wider lens opens up an extensive examination of the relationship between acts of aggression and identity, art history and power, and politics in connection with ownership and the role of the market.
