Current Affairs

Art security expert Anthony Amore discusses the crime of art theft and the ways that the intangible value of the stolen objects affects efforts to locate and retrieve them. Conservator Ingrid Neuman joins the conversation to explore the threat that theft poses to the physical materials that art works are made from. What makes stealing art different from other kinds of theft? How does the art itself change the way its caretakers-the security expert or the conservator-approach their jobs?
