8th Cologne Art Insurance-Talk

"- "Art Bolzano Montevideo? Global ride on a narrow ridge? The limits of the art market!?"

It's like Formula 1 and tennis: the big show travels around the world like a spinning wheel. Cologne, Basel, London and Miami are still important, but Hong Kong, Abu Dhabi, Singapore and São Paulo are at a glance.

Galleries and auction houses have become brokers of yield properties for post-industrial investors: Buying art becomes investment! Some want their profits in dollars, euros or yuan, others in media attention or by joining the global club of the mega-rich. The art trade has to invent new desires at shorter intervals, new places and new attractions. The stakes are high, the success rather uncertain: Who can afford it - and how long will it last? Has the insurance industry the right products and do geopolitical changes influence developments?
