Paperconservation: Decisions & Compromises

Josefsplatz, main entrance

The Interim Meeting of the Working Group Graphic and Documents will be held in Vienna from 17 to 19 April 2013, hosted by the Austrian National Library. The two-day conference, complimented by half a day of visits to museums and conservation laboratories, will provide a forum for the broad spectrum of activities in the Paper Conservation community. Challenges of digitization, changing cultural policies and economic constraints on the one hand demand growing competences of paper-, library-, and archive conservators. To which extent are decision processes in conservation influenced by changes in ethics, politics and science? Do conservators have the profile to shape these processes and to negotiate a compromise?

The meeting will present an overview of the current state of research, practice and progress in the field of paper conservation.
