Art as a crime scene: an ex-art investigator and retired chief detective provides insight into exciting and bizarre criminal cases.
Forging works of art is (almost) as old as art itself. Elisabeth Zum-Bruch hunted art forgers for almost 20 years and unmasked a multitude of alleged masterpieces - from Kirchner to Kandinsky - as not genuine. In her lecture, she will address the following aspects, among others: - the working methods of the forgers, how they can be how to catch them out and convict them, - In concrete cases, she will report, for example. how a VW Beetle betrayed a counterfeiter. betrayed a forger, - why Dali drawings were found lay - and how a Picasso ended up in a plastic bag. Do you think forgery is only a male craft? Then let us surprise you. At the end of the lecture, you are welcome to ask questions via chat or audio.
