Sotheby's Institute of Art — Singapore presents an evening course by Gil Schneider.

After drugs and arms, art is said to be the third most important criminal trade worldwide. Art objects are being used by organized crime to launder money, fund criminal activities, and even terrorism. In times of war, art is often looted by victims or lost; recovery and restitution are often difficult and time-consuming. The origins of looted art from a tomb or shipwreck are opaque.

In this course participants will get an insight into these and similar important legal questions surround the art markets, including international conventions and intellectual property rights.
