LATEST ISSUE:

JOURNAL FOR ART MARKET STUDIES (JAMS)

Museums Trading on the Art Market 
Volume 6, Number 1, 2022

Guest Editor: Helene Tello 

Contributions by Christopher Bedford, Manuela Fischer, Jörn Grabowski, Beatrix Hoffmann-Ihde, Birgit Jooss, Thomas Köhler, Alice Minter, Iñigo Salto Santamaría, Dorothea Schöne, Helene Tello 

This issue deals with museums selling on the art market. European museums were historically much less opposed to selling than we are currently led to believe. As the museum – an institution from the nineteenth century – needs to face the challenges of the twenty-first, a discussion on this sensitive topic becomes conceivable.

ELEVENTH ISSUE:

JOURNAL FOR ART MARKET STUDIES (JAMS)

Re-presenting the Art Market
Volume 5, Number 1, 2021

Guest Editor: Paul Melton (FIT State University of New York)

Contributions by Michael Hutter, Paul Melton, Nick Pearce, Claudia Quinones Vila, Bernd Friedrich Schon, Jeffrey Taylor

A public fascination with the art market and its players, with its layers of duplicity and authenticity, visibility and opacity, has long reverberated in fictional accounts, be it in film or popular culture. The new issue of the Journal for Art Market Studies explores the themes of such representations, taking the interdisciplinary approach to rarely visited territory.
