BBC Radio 4: On the Elgin Marbles

On December 14, 2021, Factum Foundation’s founder Adam Lowe participated in an interview with archaeologist Gillian Hovell following Stephen Fry’s statement on the repatriation of the Elgin Marbles to Greece. In an era of digital materiality, where cultural artefacts can be made accessible online and offline, Lowe stressed the need to properly digitise objects at the highest resolution possible, to inform and shape decisions about where and how to display those objects. Lowe also mentioned the importance of launching an in-depth debate about ownership, access and repatriation, and in this case about reunification.
