The Department of Political Economy invites you to celebrate the launch of Lost Art: the Art Loss Register’s Case Book by Professor Anja Shortland.

Prof Shortland is looking forward to discussing her fascinating research on the dark side of the art market with peers from the art world, academia and the law.

The Lost Art Book Launch will be taking place at King’s College London on 24 March. Refreshments and light snacks will be provided from 18.30, with a presentation to start at 19.00.

The event will also be live-streamed from 19.00. If you would like to watch the livestream only, there is no need to register. You will be able to watch the event on YouTube here.

Following from the success of her prize-winning book Kidnap, Prof Shortland delves into another private solution to a complex market governance problem. Her new book chronicles the positive impact of the Art Loss Register on the market for stolen art. At the same time, Lost Art offers an engrossing case book for lovers of real detective stories. A great read.
