ART COLOGNE CONFERENCE
Thursday , April 27th
Zilkens 6th Kölner Kunstversicherungsgespräch
Please note that this conference will be held in German.
Brexit, KGSG, Bankenkrise, Eurokrise; Provenienz … Schlüsselbegriffe die in den letzten Monaten immer wieder auch im Kunsthandel diskutiert werden. Neue Geschäftsmodelle bei Kunstmessen, durch das Internet oder durch private Initiativen, beeinflussen den Kunstmarkt. Nationalismen gefährden das friedliche Zusammenleben und nebenbei auch Ausstellungen. Kunst benötigt im Leihverkehr freies Geleit?

THE ART WORLD, PARADISE FOR BIG DATE?

Presentation & Round Table discussion with Sylvie Gleises (Axa Art), Adeline Pilon (HAPPENING), Adriano Picinati (Deloitte), Prof. Dr. Roman Kräussl (UNI) and several leading art and finance specialists.
THE ART WORLD IS BEGINNING TO TAKE HOLD OF BIG DATA. Earlier this year AXA Art and H A P P E N I N G teamed up to create a white paper analyzing how Big Data is shaping the art world. As well as helping us to develop a more complete vision of the art world, Big Data also offers the possibility to target individuals more closely and to better adapt to their needs. It is for this reason that AXA has created its Data Innovation Lab, dedicated to the creation and development of technologies at the cutting edge of Big Data. Together, AXA Art and H A P P E N I N G will demonstrate how the art world can fully capitalize on the potential of Big Data.
THE ART MARKET IN 2017: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITY
End June (TBC)

CONFERENCE RESPONSIBLE ART MARKET (RAM)
Tuesday, September 13th
Location will be University of Luxembourg.
The Art Law Foundation & The Art-Law Centre of the University of Geneva together with other partners, have launched a non-profit initiative aimed at identifying Responsible Art Market practices – The Responsible Art Market Initiative (“RAM”). In conjunction with the Fondation pour le droit de l’art in Geneva LAFA will present their initiative of launching guidelines for countering money laundering and terrorist financing. Issues linked to lack of transparency and authenticity are undermining trust and credibility in the art market. At the same time the legal and regulatory framework within which art businesses are required to operate is evolving and becoming increasingly complex. The Responsible Art Market Initiative (RAM) has been formed in response to these developments. RAM’s mission is: “To raise awareness amongst Art Businesses of risks faced by the art industry and provide practical guidance on establishing and implementing responsible practices to address those risks.”
CONFERENCE "LE DROIT DE L'ART FACE AUX NOUVELLES TECHNOLOGIES"
Thursday, October 12th
The speeches will take place alternatively in French and English.
Réunissant artistes et spécialistes en droit de l’art, cette conférence vise à répondre aux questions suivantes : Les critères juridiques du droit de l’art sont-ils mis à l’épreuve par les avancées technologiques (art numérique, impression 3D, ventes par internet, blockchain, œuvre virtuelle..) et celles-ci sont-elles un facteur de croissance pour l’art ?
La protection des droits de l’artiste et de ses ayants-droits mais aussi des investisseurs ou collectionneurs ainsi que les évolutions législatives souhaitables seront notamment abordées.
Les interventions auront lieu alternativement en français et en anglais.
Combining artists and art law specialists, this conference aims at answering the following questions: are the art law criteria put to the test by technological breakthroughs (digital art, 3D printing, internet sales, blockchain, virtual art works…) and are these a growth factor for the art sector?
The protection of the rights of the artists, their heirs, the investors or collectors as well as the required legislative evolutions, if any, will be approached in particular.
