Der Oddy-Test zeigt an, ob chemische Reaktionen stattfinden.

 

In this handout you can find our view about reprinting photographic artworks, a short summary of our reaserach studies and also an article about our reference scan.

FORSCHUNGSPROJEKT “NACHHALTIGE RAHMUNG VON GROSSFOTOS”

In einem Forschungsprojekt zum Thema „Nachhaltige Rahmung von Großfotos“ kooperiert die recom ART mit der Staatlichen Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart und deren Studiengang „Konservierung und Restaurierung von Kunstwerken auf Papier, Archiv- und Bibliotheksgut“. Ziel ist die Entwicklung einer grundsätzlich andersartigen Alternative zu den bisher am Markt existierenden Verbundkonstruktionen.

Innerhalb dieses Projektes führt Franziska Leidig im Rahmen ihrer Bachelor-Arbeit an der Akademie Tests an den gängigsten von recom ART verwendeten Materialien durch. Dazu gehören Alterungstests unter konstanten Klima- und Lichtbedingungen, und auch der Oddy-Test findet Anwendung. Die Materialien werden zunächst im Einzeltest, also jedes Material für sich, und später im Verbund, also kaschiert, untersucht. Die Tests werden ebenfalls Aufschluss geben, wie sich die von uns weiterentwickelte retuschierte Splice-Naht verhält.

 

LÖSBARE KASCHIERUNGEN

Weiterhin arbeitet die recom ART an einer Methode, die es erlaubt, Foto- und Inkjet-Papiere von einem rückkaschierten Trägermaterial wieder abzulösen – und dies schad- und rückstandsfrei.

 

THE ARTIST INITIATIVE SYMPOSIUM ON PHOTOGRAPHY: REPRINTING COLOR PHOTOGRAPHS AS A PRESERVATION STRATEGY

Friday, May 10, 2019 – 10 a.m. – Phyllis Wattis Theater, San Francisco – Free with RSVP

https://www.sfmoma.org/event/the-artist-initiative-symposium-on-photography-reprinting-color-photographs-as-a-preservation-strategy/

The practice of reprinting damaged photographic artworks as a preservation strategy has increasingly become a topic of research in conservation, as well as a matter of debate amongst conservators, curators, and artists. SFMOMA’s Artist Initiative, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, aims to redefine the museum’s approach to reprinting, and more broadly to the acquisition, stewardship, and display of contemporary photography. In the first phase of the project, a cross-disciplinary team of curators, conservators, and art historians interviewed photographers who are interested in reprinting their work in SFMOMA’s collection. A second phase of the project saw the team travel to meet with colleagues in American and European art institutions to share our findings and learn about their experiences. At this public symposium we will share our research findings and invite artists, curators, conservators, and others from the field of photography to contribute and engage in an open discussion on this important subject.
