On Art Storage and Tax Evasion


Filed under:

research, articles

Article and annotated, clandestine interview with a large, Geneva-based art storage facility. The facility had been implicated in tax evasion and trafficking stolen artworks from Egypt, Iraq, and Syria. I presented myself as an art collector to see exactly how easy it was to move items in and out of Europe (very easy) and how much of my identity I was required to disclose (none). Published in Thresholds no. 43.
