A Part Of Everyday Life – Furniture and other wooden objects of everyday life in conservation-restoration
The speciality group “Furniture and Wooden Objects” of the VDR (German Association of Conservator-Restorers), kindly supported by the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg, invites you to the conference ”A Part Of Everyday Life – Furniture and other wooden objects of everyday life in conservation-restoration”, taking place from 9th-11th May 2019. In this context the panel will also celebrate their 40th anniversary.
We invite you to share your experiences with us and to contribute to the programme.
The topic is a rather broad one on purpose. This conference will explore the variety and abundance in the decoration and design of vernacular objects. Apart from material- technological subjects, questions of how to develop treatment strategies for these composite objects will be dealt with. Other topics of interest are curatorial expectations conservator-restorers have to meet as well as the care for and development of collections.
We look forward to receiving your abstract!
The deadline for submission of abstracts is August 31, 2018
