Title

The Implications for the Museologist in Handling, Safeguarding, Exhibiting or Returning the Collection Arising from Confiscation

Author

Antonio Felipe da Silva Junior

Date

January 1970

Description

The author is sharing 'this recent research of my own on confiscated artwork, properties and other goods stolen during the Nazi regime, from 1933 to 1945. Very much related with justice and ethics in Museology (I am currently graduating on Museum Studies), this subject has fascinated me for a while. We verified the importance of this theme for the field of Museology and through this paper, we discussed the problem involving acquisition of spoiled works of art, their exhibition in museums and the trading through art galleries/antique dealers as well as some contemporary attempts to return them to their rightful owners.

If relevant, I make this work available so that your institution can share it with anyone interested in the subject. It has been a concern of the academy to give this feedback to the community, which can be useful for mutual improvement.'

The paper is available here.
 

The author Antonio Felipe da Silva Junior is a graduate in Museum Studies in the Anthropology and Museology Department at the Federal University of Pernambuco in Recife, Brazil.
