Erik Nemeth (https://yale.academia.edu/ErikNemeth) presented "The Art of Cultural Intelligence: Intelligence for Countering Threats to Cultural Property in Conflict" at the International Conference on "Archaeology in Conflict" in Vienna, Austria. The talk describes a system (http://culturalsecurity.net/cs/cultur...) for collecting intelligence on the significance of artworks, antiquities, and monuments in international security.
Specific examples include statistics on a decade of global sales of antiquities and tribal art. In particular, sales and trade volume for African tribal art show a distinctive increase. Sales of artworks originating from nations of the Sahel make a significant contribution to the trend, and sales of tribal art that originates from the region of Mali stand out in a detailed analysis (http://culturalsecurity.net/cs/resear...).
