and demand and spans from upstream to downstream. The course is structured in a way that will expose students to progressively more detailed material. The ﬁrst part of the course sets the scene, enabling students to master fundamental concepts and making connections between various trends. In the second part of the course we will expand on selected topics of particular relevance, focussing on the three main gas regions : North America, Europe and Asia. Throughout the course, we will make reference to historical elements, although the main objective is to deepen understanding of present trends, stimulate out-of-the-box thinking on hotly debated topics, and try to look into the future of gas. Interactive participation and questions from the students are highly encouraged. Required reading : Executive summary of the World Energy Outlook (WEO), IEA ; MediumTerm Gas Market Report, IEA ; Quarterly Report on Natural Gas (latest version), European Commission at https ://ec.europa.eu/energy/en/statistics/market-analysis.
Mid-semester and following a ﬁeld trip to galleries, museums or art fairs, each student will write a short note analyzing their experience (25%). Groups of students will work on a practical case in the form of a dossier at the end of the semester (50%). Workload : Students should read the articles and documents provided before each session. If recommended, they could visit galleries, museums and art fairs. Students can make general research on the topics. If a guest is invited for a presentation, they must prepare speciﬁc questions. Pedagogical Method : Each course will address a different aspect of the international art market. An introduction will be made ﬁrst. It will be developed by an oral presentation by the students. The technical aspects and practical cases will then be discussed. A session of Q&A will conclude the course. Course Description : This course aims at providing intellectual and professional knowledge of the art market both in France and on an international level. It also presents a micro-level and comprehensive analysis of the global art market while teaching the students about the legal and ﬁnancial aspects of working in the art world. An introduction to Art History, focusing on contemporary art, will be provided. Attention will be given to the analysis of the different actors of the art world and their relationships : artists, galleries, art fairs, collectors, auction houses, foundations, museums and others involved in the art trade. Creating, buying, selling and collecting art require codiﬁed skills that will be examined. Compared with other sectors, the art market is difﬁcult to quantify as most sales are conducted privately. However, and as the industry grows in a more globalized context, it is essential to integrate ethics, methods, ﬁnancial rules and legal regulations. In the end and through this examination, the students will be able to address questions about the future of the art market. Professionals will join us to address these subjects. Students are invited to participate in the understanding of the art market via lectures, case 1433
