Konferenz: 'Restitution of Nazi-looted Art'

Full Title: "'The Return of Beauty: Restitution on Nazi-looted Art in Comparative Perspectives" Over 75 years have passed since the end of WWII and the issue of Nazi-looted art is still very much present and even growing. Museums and private owners worldwide and in Israel still hold artworks looted from Jews during the Holocaust which have not yet been restituted. In 1998 the Washington Conference set up principles for the restitution of artworks confiscated during the years 1933-1945. The course was the first comprehensive attempt to bring together law and art-history students, from Israel and Germany, and academically teach them two primary disciplines: the legal framework for restitution; and provenance research. The course aimed at providing historical context and research methods, and discussing their interaction with the legal issues raised, such as what can be considered a ‘just and fair solution’ as stipulated in the Washington Principles.
