The session navigates the complex legal side of presenting contemporary art , specifically exploring risks and presenting safeguards when working with collections, including lending and borrowing, donating and accepting, disposal and de-acquisition. This course will also look at the ethics beyond the law, and when it is best to apply a moral standard to cultural property.
