Behind the Scenes

Complementing Memory and Continuity, the workshop Behind the Scenes, invited participants to discover the profession of collecting. From researching collecting to preservation this workshop provided a great introduction into how a collection is formed.

In the age of technology, historic works can be just as interesting! How do you think works of art created by using different techniques are able to withstand the passing of time and still manage to look new? With this workshop, participants learned about what goes on behind the scenes when it comes to works preserved in a collection. They were not only introduced to the theoretical aspects of preservation, but visited the special departments in which these collections were kept. With a magnifying glass, a pair of gloves and special chemicals, you, too, can become a restorer!
