American Museums Versus Looted Art — They’re Failing


“In 2008, the AAM admirably pledged to fight the trade in looted antiquities by passing a set of guidelines for its member institutions that own or acquire archeological material and ancient art. We recently put AAM member museums to the test to see whether they were actually complying with these guidelines. What we found is gravely concerning, not just for these museums, but for the United States’ ability to fight the global black market in looted art.” – Hyperallergic
