A short history of art crime over the last hundred years


Online booking subject to a 5% booking fee per ticket (capped at £5 per transaction)


This talk focuses on the most significant art heists of the past hundred years. Why do thieves steal works of art that have almost zero chance of resale? Is it conducted by organized crime gangs or are they undertaken by opportunist amateurs? What happens to masterpieces once stolen? Are they really stashed in some millionaire's mountain hideaway or is the story more tawdry and mundane? We shine a light into the darker recesses of international crime syndicates.
