Berlin, DE: Art, Crime & Criminals: Free Workshop, 7–8 September 2017

Organised by Professor Duncan Chappell, Dr Saskia Hufnagel, and Ms Marissa Marjos, this is the third of three Art Crime focused workshops, the first two of which were in London. This workshop specifically focuses on the looting, plunder, and destruction of heritage. I’ll be giving a regional case study: trafficking of antiquities in and out of Latin America.
