Volume 2, Number 3, 2018

This year’s third issue of the Journal for Art Market Studies is focused on the subject “Asian Art: Markets, Provenance, History” and 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.

Translocations and the Art Market
Volume 2, Number 2, 2018

Ever since antiquity, the art market and the translocation of art have been closely related. The fourth issue of the Journal for Art Market Studies explores aspects of translocation facilitated by the art market, for example through lucrative trade in looted art as under the Nazis, the skillful exploitation of economic opportunities by wealthy overseas buyers, politically induced sales of national cultural assets as after the Russian Revolution, or the trade in colonial objects whose acquisition circumstances are often unknown.

Exhibiting Art for Sale

Volume 2, Number 1, 2018

The third issue of the Journal for Art Market Studies is dedicated to the exhibition space of the art market. What are the historical and current interrelations between exhibition strategies and sales transactions?

The themes of the articles range from contemporary New York art galleries, art fairs, modern art galleries in Paris and Berlin at the beginning of the 20th century, to art trade palaces built in Munich around 1900, as well as American barbershops of the late 18th and early 19th century.

Theories of the Art Market: Data – Value – History

Volume 1, Number 2, 2017

Is Art Market Studies a discipline in its own right, or rather a research focus area? And if it is a research focus area, then which discipline does it belong to? Art history? Economic or social history? Sociology? Economics of culture?

In this second issue "Theories of the Art Market: Data – Value – History" we ask about the theories of art market research and their different approaches, methods and objectives. We ask from an art history perspective which is quite open to transdisciplinary approaches.

The Pricing of Art. Makers – Markets – Museums

Volume 1, Number 1, 2017

This first issue of our open access Journal for Art Market Studies does not seek to provide estimates of artwork prices. Instead, "The Pricing of Art. Makers - Markets - Museums" focuses on analysing how market players and institutions in the “art market system” have combined to affect the pricing of art, both now and in the past.

The aim is to present selected case studies which offer representative insights into different countries, periods, networks and phenomena from the perspective of art and museum historians, economists, and sociologists.
