Symposium “The aesthetic presentation of wall paintings – problems and solutions”
3. Oktober 2017 - 4. Oktober 2017
The Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage of Slovenia, the Restoration Centre, the Slovenian Society for the Conservation-Restoration, and the Association of the Conservators of Cultural Heritage of Slovenia kindly invite you to the symposium on “The aesthetic presentation of wall paintings – problems and solutions”.
The two-day symposium is to take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, 3rd and 4th October 2017. Day 1 is reserved for presentations by Slovenian and foreign lecturers, while Day 2 is dedicated to visiting the select, recently restored wall painting in the Gorenjska region (in Radovljica, Bled and Bohinj).
The symposium is the second thematic meeting focused on the exchange of views, concepts, theoretical approaches and practices. The common thread is the exploration of various approaches to final presentation and to questions about its practical execution, protocols in decision-making and directives. We hope to encourage discussion and comparison of different conservation and restoration methods and their influence on aesthetic presentation. Our aim is to shape further steps needed to improve the work of experts in the field of conservation and restoration of wall paintings. The symposium welcomes conservators and restorers as well as owners of cultural heritage and all interested in working in the given field.
