Foundation for the Conservation of Contemporary Art

The Foundation for the Conservation of Contemporary Art (Dutch abbreviation: SBMK) aims to initiate research projects and develop sound practices related to the preservation and conservation of contemporary art.

Since its inception the SBMK focuses on collaboration between conservators, scientists, curators, artists, lawyers, philosophers, art historians and art theorists. The SBMK joins forces not only among Dutch museums, but also among research institutes, universities and other education centers. Members of the UvA Conservation department take part in both the Board of Trustees and the Steering Committee, collaborating in a number of research projects, such as The Artist Interview and Project Plastics.
