Guest Editors: Christine Howald and Alexander Hofmann
We are delighted to present the fifth issue of the peer-reviewed open-access Journal for Art Market Studies, published by Forum Kunst und Markt/Centre for Art Market Studies at Technische Universität Berlin.
“Asian Art: Markets, Provenance, History” traces the circumstances and the paths taken by East Asian objects through the art market towards Western collections, be it the porcelain collection of Augustus the Strong, the looting of the Chinese imperial summer palace, or the current market for contemporary art.
The third issue of the Journal for Art Market Studies focuses on the role and development of the exhibition space in a commercial context, from the American barbershop to veritable art trade palaces built in Munich around 1900, as well as both forerunners of and alternatives to today’s commercial gallery spaces.
Forum Kunst und Markt/ Centre for Art Market Studies at Technische Universität Berlin is delighted to present its first issue of the Journal for Art Market Studies – JAMS.
It is a peer-reviewed open-access journal for current international research on the art market of all periods. The articles are published in English. The first issue is dedicated to The Pricing of Art: Makers – Markets – Museums, the second one will be devoted to Theories of the Art Market.
