This international two-day symposium, Contemporary Art Conservation Revisited: 20 Years Later, celebrates the 20-year anniversary of the start of the training programme in the Bern Academy of the Arts in 1998, which is at the same time when also the programme in Maastricht had started at the SRAL, which later merged into the UvA’s programme Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Hertitage. The symposium will reflect on evolving roles and practices in the field.
