Detail Summary
Date 20 June 2019
Time 15:00 - 17:30

The Back to Black-project offered the Museum Hof van Busleyden, an institution with a strong focus on audience participation, a unique opportunity to realize a museum presentation that combines historical research, scientific re-enactment and citizen science (i.e. active input of the public) in a meaningful way. Particular attention in 'Back to Black' is paid to the search for methods and techniques enabling the visitors to relive the black color experience of the past, thus enriching their perception and understanding of the color black.

The Technical Art History Colloquium is organised by Sven Dupré (Utrecht University and University of Amsterdam, PI ERC ARTECHNE), Arjan de Koomen (University of Amsterdam, Coordinator MA Technical Art History), Abbie Vandivere (University of Amsterdam, Coordinator MA Technical Art History & Paintings Conservator, Mauritshuis, The Hague), Erma Hermens (University of Amsterdam and Rijksmuseum) and Ann-Sophie Lehmann (University of Groningen).

Location: Museum Hof van Busleyden, Frederik de Merodestraat 65, Mechelen, Belgium.
