7th Cologne Fine Art Insurance Talks

"Gurlitt, Stern, Flechtheim - who insures history for me?" under this title the 7th Cologne Fine Art Insurance Talks took place during the 52. ART COLOGNE.

Friday, 20th April 2018, Maurice Philip Remy (author of the book "Der Fall Gurlitt"), Julia Barbara Ries (chief of the art insurance at ERGO), Karin Schulze-Frieling (Gallery Utermann, Dortmund and 2nd chairwoman of the BVDG), Amelie Ebbinghaus (Provenance Researcher, Art Loss Register, London) discuss amongst others with Peter Grabowski from 10 a.m. in Europasaal, KölnMesse.

Topics such as provenance, property issues as well as in the private and public sector, cultural heritage law in Germany and abroad or the title insurance should be considered from different perspectives.
Title Insurance, currently barely common in Germany, secures ownership of a work of art. Without proving the provenance, this can hardly be guaranteed. What kind of resource does the insurance sector use?

Is it even possible to cover the authenticity of an artwork by insurance?

How do insurers handle today the question of provenance in day-to-day business? Is an in-house provenance research department the general rule or do they buy the expertise externally?

The task is clear: To know the risks and cover them by insurance.

The invited representatives of different business units on the panel promise an exciting and controversial debate on a highly delicate and important issue.
