Research and Review - Advancements in conservation and assessment of previous experiences
A congress topic to illustrate how the conservation-restoration discipline has evolved over the last decades. Progress has been made both through research and trial-and-error. Analytical methods, documentation, conservation treatments, choice of material as well as the circumstances under which conservator-restorers work are continuously developing.
The congress opens for evaluation of the profession and how we utilize and share our experiences. We look back to analyze the viability of conservation treatment techniques, how we deal with ethical dilemmas, use of best-practice, look back on collaborations we have had and the guidelines which we have been following since the 1980´s till today.
The congress will be held at the Swedish Royal Academy of Engineering Sciences, IVA Conference Centre in Stockholm, 21-22 October 2021. You will also be able to register for an online participation.
