“New Perspective to See Art – Law” by lawyer Kim Hyeongjin

1. Introduction

Ever since the arts became familiar to ordinary people and emerged as a new field of investment, the law related to the arts also became important. Among a variety of perspectives to see art, we will try to see how art related to law is seen in our everyday lives. During the lecture, we will satisfy our curiosity of some of the art’s masterpieces such as, what law did the painter violate, who will get the copyright of the art pieceparody, who gets the property rights of the paintings if the owner bought the paiting without knowing it was stolen, and how a painting can be judged as freedom of expression or pornography.

The lawyer will teach how to view paintings using law, a new perspective about arts, with various examples and anecdotes about legal trouble around the art world. Kim Hyeongjin, an American lawyer who works for the Jeongse Law Firm and contributes to Jungang Sunday the column <Law School in Art Museum> will be our lecturer. He is teaching Law about Fine Art at the graduate school of art, at Seoul National University.
