Should Culturally or Historically Significant Artwork Be Property of the State?
This removes the cultural value of artworks by putting a price on them.
Culturally significant artworks will now have a value, which will be used to compare different artworks and cultures. This trivializes artwork because people will focus on its monetary as opposed to cultural value.
Priceless artworks will be sold for money, from members of the creating culture to the government, which devalues the artworks because they lose some of their historical context, as they are no longer owned by their rightful owners.
A price does not negate their importance in the slightest, but rather augments them.
