Art and Law  

In the Twentieth Century, art criticism and aesthetics doubted that the concept of art itself was really legitimate. On the other hand, most recent experiences in contemporary art suggest an overvaluation of an artist’s gesture compared to art products. This is contradictory with historical experience and social perception of artistic fact. At the same time, this contrasts with the economic value attributed to art products. On these issues, the legal analysis is very fascinating, because it includes all spaces between the creative aspiration and concrete work and its circulation. In the first part, the research is open to philosophical sciences, criticism and neuroscience. The strictly legal speech is about Constitutional Law, Civil Law, Law of Procedure and Criminal Law.
To date the investigated topics refer to:

  • Concept of art and art fact
  • Protection of art and artists
  • Circulation of art objects
  • Art exploitation
  • Restitution of Cultural Properties
