Just When You Thought... AAMD’s “Strengthened” Antiquities-Collecting Guidelines Widen the Loopholes

  has examined the AAMD’s “Strengthened” Antiquities-Collecting Guidelines:
My enthusiastic response to the Association of Art Museum Directors’ announcement that it had voted to “strengthen” its 2008 antiquities-collecting guidelines was premature. Having now read and analyzed the full document, comparing it closely with the 2008 guidelines, it seems to me that the primary change in AAMD’s eight-page Revisions to the 2008 Guidelines on the Acquisition of Archaeological Material and Ancient Art involves the delineation of loopholes that could be used to justify a member museum’s decision to acquire pieces despite their problematic pasts. 
Quelle surprise.
