Morals and Messaging: Cultural Property Debates in Today’s Art World
By Cat Manson
27th January 2021 6pm

The lecture will be an exploration and debate about the rise of cultural property issues in today’s art world including the art market. Cat will look at why people collect and will focus on the context of collecting with conflict and geopolitical shifts in power in mind. Cat will highlight some of the great objects that are now questioned as ethically correct to own; and the concept of ownership. She will then discuss the role of objects in different cultures and importance of museums and access. Finally Cat will assess the rise of cancel culture and the effect of digital media on nuanced debate, before asking – What could or should happen next?
