New Approaches in the Conservation of Contemporary Art

NACCA is a research and training programme, which aims at educating a new generation of professional curators, conservators, and academic researchers who are properly equipped to face the challenges complex contemporary artworks pose.

The PhD programme is designed by experts working in museums, heritage organisations, and universities that have a profound experience in the field of contemporary art conservation and conservation research throughout Europe. The PhD Research on Artist Interviews and Artist Participation has been designed by UvA’s Department Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage through the Specialization of Contemporary Art. The project is initiated and coordinated by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Maastricht University. The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network NACCA is funded by the European Union H2020 Programme. For more info see the NACCA project website.
