Webinar „A sustainable approach to insect and biocide contamination treatments in collections“

17. November 2020 @ 14:00 - 17:00

The Integrated Contaminatio Management UK Ltd is pleased to announce that the 17/11 workshop in The Hague will now be held digitally as a free webinar, in collaboration with RKD – Netherlands Institute for Art History.

Datum: 17.11.2020
Zeit: 14-17 Uhr
Ort: Online

Art and heritage collections are at risk to get attacked by insects which can severely damage or, if undetected, destroy the objects. One of many unwanted side effects of the corona pandemic lockdown and reduced or furloughed staff is the decrease of collection monitoring in museums, storage areas and heritage sites. This could result in a drastic increase of insect activity.

There is yet another and quite different aspect of the corona pandemic in context with collections: some of the biocides which have been applied to art and heritage collections have an adverse effect on the human immune system. Even decades after the application some of the CMR (cancerogenic mutagen reprotoxic) substances remain highly toxic and harmful.

Link zum Programm und zur Anmeldung:

Im Rahmen des Webinars wird u.a. Dr. Boaz Paz zum Thema der Kontamination von Kunst- und Kulturgut mit gesundheitsgefährdenden und materialschädigenden Substanzen referieren. Im Mittelpunkt seines Vortrages stehen die Ergebnisse des Dekontaminationsprojektes mittels des ICM-Verfahrens.
