Lecture: Art theft

Back

We cordially invite you to the second lecture from the series "The Other Side of Art", in which we will focus on the art theft.

Every year around 50,000 - 100,000 works of art are stolen worldwide. It is not a rare activity at all, on the contrary. Less known works as well as the well-known are being stolen. But why? Is it possible to sell a stolen work? Melita Fodor Gwerková will address this issue from an international perspective, focusing mainly on the following areas:

- current numbers
- the most common motivation or why does someone steal Munch's Scream?
- the best-known, greatest and most absurd theft of works of art
- can art theft be prevented?
- insure or not to insure the art work?

Location: Art Books Coffee, Bastova 6 / B, Bratislava
