Summary
"This book, the fourth edition of Law, Ethics and the Visual Arts, incorporates insights into numerous developments that have occurred in recent years, from the widespread bomb damage of the nineties to such specialized agreements as the UNESCO Convention on Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage." "These issues include: "military necessity" as justification for destruction; ugly, obscene, or offensive artworks as "free speech"; fakes and forgeries; the inner workings of art auctions; laws relating to art crimes - who do they protect?; trade in antiquities, and much else besides. A documentary appendix presents the texts of 23 relevant laws, conventions, treaties, declarations, resolutions, guidelines, codes of professional practice, and the terms and conditions of sale of major art auction houses." "Whether you need to understand something as provocative as who owns the past, or something as mundane as whether a museum can sell part of its collection in order to fix the roof, this book will set you on the right course. It combines scholarship with a deeply humanistic approach, recognizing that law and art each (in the words of Paul Freund) "impose a measure of order on the disorder of experience without stifling the underlying diversity, spontaneity, and disarray.""--BOOK JACKET
