June 12-13, 2010: Joint interim meeting ICOM-CC working groups Education and Training (E&T) and Modern Materials and Contemporary Art (MMCA), Bonnefantenmuseum.
The primary aim of this two-day Interim meeting was to consider and discuss how the existing conservation training programs are responding to the range of new knowledge and skills that are frequently required for the conservation of modern and contemporary works of art. The essential questions that were posed were: Which of these new needs are best tackled at the training level? What steps are training programs already taking to incorporate modern / contemporary art into their curricula? And, what are the most appropriate steps forward?
The report of the meeting gives an overview of the discussions held at this meeting. It is not a full transcript, but a detailed description of the points raised and debated. The Education & Training and Modern Materials & Contemporary Art working groups of ICOM-CC hope that this report will initiate further and sustained dialogue between the training programs and within the profession at large.
