Black Markets

Related to our class discussion today, here’s some links for you to peruse :

A scholarly-but-straightforward and enjoyable article on the Sotheby’s-Christie’s price fixing scandal of 2000.

Thanks to Julia K. for this link to the Yad Vashem website and an essay (see pages 10-12) on the confiscating of Jewish property by the Nazis.

Thank you Dasha for your mention of the satellite Frieze fair at Pierogi gallery in Williamsburg – we should have a final class field trip! The opening party is this Friday and it’s free and open to all.
