Germany 2019. Director: Peter Heller. Documentary film. 101 mins. DCP
Museums around the world house extensive collections of African art. On the art market, they have become objects of speculation. Prices rose to unimaginable heights for a long time. Now this market is coming to a standstill, threatening countless jobs in Africa as well. A debate has been sparked about the repatriation of art objects. The film VERKAUFTE GÖTTER. GETAUSCHT – GERAUBT – GERETTET traces African art among dealers in West Africa and collectors in Europe, at auctions and in museums in Basel and Bamako, Brussels and Paris, Munich and Berlin.
