Online-Symposium: Prediction of radiation-induced damage of white paper
21. Oktober 2022 @ 13:00 - 18:00
Online Symposium – Friday, October 21, 2022, 13.00 – 18.00 o’clock (CET)
“Prediction of radiation-induced damage of white paper in cultural heritage objects”
Light exposure is one pressing preservation issue in all museums, archives, and libraries where paper objects undergo ever-increasing cycles of public exhibition and loans. Planning exhibition horizons for paper objects depends fundamentally on light dose decisions. Except for lignin-rich and optically brightened types, white paper is considered stable by guidelines, a classification we believe is too undifferentiated.
The members of the research project – the Stuttgart Academy of Art and Design, the Museum of Prints and Drawings and the Rathgen Research Laboratory both at the State Museums at Berlin, and Dresden University of Fine Arts – and invited speakers will
- present the ongoing research project “Prediction of radiation-induced damage of white paper in cultural heritage objects” funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG)
- provide context with a focus on historic and modern white paper
offer a platform for exchange regarding (future) exhibition policies for white paper
