Currently, I work on sexualities and economics in my research project on queer wills and inheritance practices in sexually marginalised groups. Often, inheritance contains art objects or other aesthtical items which are difficult to value, or whose value those left behind may not understand or agree upon or become a target of dispute. In this sense, art items can become politiziced items of intimate economics.
