The European Associations of Conservators und Restorers of Germany (VDR), Austria (ÖRV), Switzerland (SKR) and South Tirol (VRKS-ARCA), all of them Members of E.C.C.O., take the European Cultural Heritage Year (ECHY) as an opportunity to throw a spotlight on the uniting elements within the cultural sphere of Europe. We are pleased to invite you, on the occasion of the trade fair EXPONATEC COLOGNE, to a joint convention on 23. and 24. November 2017 in Cologne.
The theme of the convention ‚Trompe-l’oeil − Illusion und Wirklichkeit (Illusion and Reality)‘ seizes on an art genre which imposes particular requirements on interdisciplinary cooperation in Conservation and Restoration. The conference offers an opportunity to discuss, on the grounds of inspiring and individual solutions, a multitude of aspects and materials related to optical illusions from a whole variety of art forms.
The program of lectures is rounded by a festive reception, kindly sponsored by the Deutsches Nationalkomitee für Denkmalschutz (German national committee for the monument protection), at the Museum Wallraff-Richartz & Foundation Corboud.
