Problem: How to establish a worldwide Code of Ethics?
The art industry is mostly unregulated and coupled with a culture of secrecy and a nefarious
underside of conflicting interests, fraud and intrigues. Some of the
best known experts and traders have been sued for intentional
misrepresentations. Other recognized authorities refuse to
authenticate any longer nor deliver public opinions because their
risk of liability and fear of a costly lawsuit.
Fakes and forgeries have entangled
millions of artlovers already and the black market continues to
thrive. Technology has taken over and many collectors suspect to have been fooled. The lower to medium priced art trade runs almost without
any control. Good Faith has no more quality when acquiring in
art.... Its enough to just watch ethical standards fading away completely! This initiative will fight back from bottom to the top:
Solution: Legal advance with due dilligence!
Today many judges in art concerning
lawsuits rule in favor of that party which has initiated sufficient
investigation regarding authenticity and legal aspects of the
contested art investment. Due diligent practise becomes a standard
obligation and an increasing burden on art buyers and traders - Yet the question often is how to do and where to start.
To stay on the safe
side collectors and investors need to manage
their assets with more than voluntary diligence. Lack of knowledge does not protect from uncomfortable questions or legal action, which will occur at latest when collectibles are
traded, donated, bequested or given as a loan. ArtAuth.com cares about all duties and legal advance.
Strategy: Proactive art management
ArtAuth.com supplies artists,
collectors and traders with an art object documentation compliant to
international museums standards. With a full set of structured
authenticity questions and a due diligence checklist
our members prepare for investigation in detail. Every object profile can be individually scrutinized referring properties and condition,
evidences or doubts of attribution, provenance, genuity as well as financial
and legal background. Experts, scientists and connoisseurs are welcome to share their knowledge.
Art exchange via global ArtAuth panel
ArtAuth.com launches an innovative
approach as public information exchange and worldwide panel to
justify and eventually protect the authenticity of represented art objects.
Benefits are granted to artists’ estates, collections, to past or planned
art transactions as well as sales inventory on preview. Depending on purpose
the panel also facilitates to trace suspicious acquisitions and helps to recover
lost or stolen valuables. Meanwhile ArtAuth postings are protected against lawsuits.
Art object identification hub
ArtAuth.com also offers a new informational billboard to interrogate and (dis-)qualify selected aspects and statements in collaboration with engaged connoisseurs, insiders and
experts. External professionals offering adaequate skills are listed in directories. Scientists
can be involved to identify, certify and finally protect the value of
a proven art original. Art dealers may use the ArtAuth OCR labels on sales items directly linking to the objectprofile. Every timecoded representation on ArtAuth panel constitutes preview transparency with its own legal impact.
"Hold harmless" discussion interface
ArtAuth.com on top adds an innovative
communication interface that protects our members and their
representations against legal action. While the art objects in question are encoded via public panel, the complete object profiling together with information exchanges are limited to memberarea or might stay undisclosed just like the corresponding
member identity and important documents.
Art Authentication Panel
ArtAuth.com supplies a toolset for individual art management enabling operational due diligence. Its a social enterprise for the
"Collectors of Truth" who want to support an artmarket rebound towards transparency and consumer protection. As a global Art research panel it can be a profitable business concept.

authentication panel and help to fight the worldwide cultural rackeering.
