Description

Works of art and cultural heritage sites are common casualties in war. In many cases, the sale of plundered treasures has helped finance ongoing conflict. In this episode, two experts examine the history of conflict-driven looting. Along the way, they trace the opaque, unregulated international art market that allows irreplaceable treasures to travel from strife-torn regions to the catalogues of prestigious auction houses.

 

Featured Guests: 

Amr Al Azm (Professor of History and Anthropology, Shawnee State University) 

Tess Davis (Executive Director, Antiquities Coalition)
