ANN: The Art Law Library (Institute of Art and Law / Hart Publishing)

The Institute of Art and Law, in association with Hart Publishing, has launched the Art Law Library. The series is the continuation of IAL’s book publishing branch and, as such, will continue to publish books on all aspects of the law relating to art in its widest sense, including antiquities, museums, intangible cultural heritage, archives, intellectual property and human remains. I am happy to act as Series Editor for the Art Law Library and will be working closely with the team at Hart, including publisher Roberta Bassi.

The first book in the series will be an in-depth analysis of the world’s longest-running cultural dispute, The Parthenon Marbles: Heritage, Law, Politics written by the Director of IAL, Alexander Herman (publication date: 21 September 2023). Other books in the series will include Digitising Cultural Heritage by Pinar Oruç and Copyright and Conceptual Art by Shane Burke, two authors we have enjoyed working with in the past on IAL programmes.

The Institute of Art and Law is an educational organisation giving knowledge and perspective on the law relating to cultural heritage, a concept which includes art, antiquities, archives, archaeology, architecture, monuments, treasure and much, much more.
