“Art insurance is huge business,” so one recent art-market commentator observes, “and not least now that artworks move around the world in far greater volume and frequency than ever before.” Insurance indeed exerts pervasive influence upon contemporary art. It is a requirement for art’s circulation, a judge of monetary value, an arbiter of the conditions of display. But, how has insurance come to occupy such a central position in the arts? Where, when and why have artists and architects made technologies of risk key to their enterprises? Art history possesses few working narratives of how insurance has ramified through the visual arts and architecture on its way to literally underwriting their conditions of contemporary possibility. This seminar aims to advance such a critical history. Introducing the general problematic, we will work through a sequence of cases as we aim to build a provisional genealogy of insurance’s crossings with art, architecture, the market, and the museum. Along the way, we will examine where and how insurance has penetrated into the texture of modernity, shaping the nature of subjectivity, the role of the state, the value of human life (both enslaved and “free”), among other considerations.
