Diagnosis in Heritage Science
Focus on Modern and Contemporary Art
This year's Summer school by University of Pisa's Group of Analytical Chemistry for the Conservation of Cultural Heritage focuses on materials and problems encountered in the conservation of modern and contemporary art.
The school provides lessons to transmit knowledge for the characterization of materials, for the techniques suitable for their characterization, for the assessment of their state of alteration. Special attention will be paid to the study of products and technologies to be used in conservation. Each year the School will be dedicated to a different topic within Heritage Science. In 2018, the school will be focused on materials and problems encountered in the conservation of modern and contemporary art.
The Summer School consists of a one-week programme of multi-disciplinary studies. Professors in conservation research from all over Europe are contributing to the programme, including Klaas Jan van den Berg and Sanneke Stigter from the Conservation and Restoration department of the UvA. The Summer school is designed to train graduated students (MA), in particular PhD students, with interests in Heritage Science.
The course offers 4 grants of 250€. The grants will be distributed on a competitive basis, considering the academic quality of the student and the country of provenance, privileging economically disadvantaged areas.
