The keynotes of the event are information on the current state of scholarship and interdisciplinary exchange between conservators and art historians.
The symposium starts on Thursday, 12 June with a keynote lecture by Richard Brettell (University of Texas, Dallas). On Friday, 13 June and Saturday, 14 June sixteen talks will be given. The symposium will be conducted in German and English. All German talks will be translated simultaneously into English.
The symposium will be held by the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum & Fondation Corboud in co-operation with the Cologne Institute of Conservation Science (CICS), the Association of German Conservators (VDR) and the friends of the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum und Museum Ludwig. It is being generously sponsored by the Fritz Thyssen Stiftung and the RheinEnergieStiftung Jugend, Beruf und Wissenschaft.
