This talk focuses on the errant itineraries of dispossessed and “lost” artworks from the late Ottoman Empire and the early Turkish Republic. Some of these artworks have been looted during episodes of state violence;
others have been written out of art history or have been destroyed. Others still have been made unrecognizable by way of missing provenance (that is the biography of an art object), or - connectedly - misattribution.
