Chicago conference on art restitution and human rights

Posted on: September 30, 2015 by

Those of our readers from Chicago (or passing through the area) may be interested in a fascinating conference coming up called Art Restitution, Preservation of Cultural Heritage and the Human Right to Identity hosted by the John Marshall Law School, running on 15-16th October 2015.


The programme includes presentations on the return of Nazi-looted art, the protection of cultural sites during armed conflict and ‘repatriation as a human right’. It should make for a varied and stimulating two days. Also, they will be airing the film Woman in Gold – so if you haven’t seen it, here’s your chance.
