Interessengemeinschaft Deutscher Kunsthandel (Ed.)
Fair und gerecht?
Restitution und Provenienz im Kunstmarkt. Praxis – Probleme – Perspektiven
For the first time in October 2019 the symposium held in Munich shed light on the historically and legally complex topic of Nazi looted art, restitution and provenance from the perspective of the art trade. The conference provided insights into the practice of the established art trade, which stands up for the mediation and preservation of cultural goods on a high level of expertise and responsibility. The publication on the conference "Fair and just?" includes all lectures and discussion rounds of the event. Against the backdrop of the legal-moral tension renowned lawyers, provenance researchers and art dealers examined various best-practice solutions with the aim of enabling the art trade to continue to work in the future.
The Interessengemeinschaft Deutscher Kunsthandel (Community of Interest of German Art Dealers) was founded in 2019. Its members include the six most important associations by professionals of the German markets for cultural goods: those of art dealers, gallerists, auctioneers, antiquarians and coin dealers.
