Oggetti Trovati
(found objects), 2009


Framed photographs of found historical vases that were circulating in the Italian underworld for the purpose of selling them on the illegal art market. In Italy, the finder of ancient treasures is legally obliged to hand them over to the Department of National Heritage, in exchange for either a cash reward or a tax reduction.



De Appel in collaboration with Witte de Wit present an auction of more than 100 contemporary artworks sold for realisation of future projects.
