Open workshop on art crime at Queen Mary

Posted on: June 17, 2016 by

This Tuesday, 21st June, there will be an open workshop on art crime at Queen Mary, University of London. The workshop, entitled Art, Crime and Criminals: Painting Fresh Pictures of Art Theft, Fraud and Plunder, is part of an AHRC-funded series that will continue in two further segments, one more in London (on frauds and forgeries) in January 2017 and the other in Germany (on looting and iconoclasm) in June 2017.


The aim of Tuesday’s workshop is to bring together different actors from the law enforcement, business and academic fields to discuss the issue of art crime, how it can be characterised and how it can be stopped. Speaking at the event will be representatives of Interpol, the Carabinieri and the Art Loss Register, along with a number of top-ranked academics specialising in the area.

For those interested in attending, there may still be some room available if you contact Dr Saskia Hufnagel at
