Iconoclash: Trafficking Cultural Materials: Appropriation of Mankind's Property

source: New York University    2016年5月16日
NYU Washington, DC welcomed Douglas Boin, Tess Davis and Iris Gerlach, who discussed trafficking as the irreversible appropriation of cultural properties which contribute to humanity’s richness. Their destruction and, to no lesser degree, their trafficking destroy invaluable foundations in the self-awareness of mankind’s history and development. How can reproductions replace the fundamental contribution of the originals? How does the growing demand for antique cultural treasures impact preservation and protection? How does private ownership relate to common property in terms of U.N. standards? Alexander Nagel moderated the discussion.
