Workshop – Indonesian Conservation Theory for Cultural Heritage

Dr. Patricia Engel is organizing a workshop on the topic of Indonesian Conservation Theory on 2-3 November 2021 at Danube University Krems. The workshop will be held virtually over Zoom, or if COVID situation allows, in a hybrid format.

Based on her many years of research into conservation theory, and the ongoing co-operation with Institut Seni Indonesia, Yogyakarta, Patricia Engel, scientific staff member of Department for Building and Environment at Danube University Krems, Austria, will hold a workshop on the ways of applying or adapting European conservation theory to the Indonesian cultural setup.
The workshop will not only seek to find a path towards a new conservation theory appropriate for Indonesia, but will also allow for discussion of problem points in the European conservation theory. Another result will be a theoretical scheme of approaching the issue that can hopefully be applied to many cases. Mandatory requirement for launching this work is discussing the terms and definitions that have been in circulation so far and have not been applied consistently.

If you are interested in speaking at the workshop, please send an abstract for a short presentation to Dr. Engel at . Indonesian scholars and conservators, as well as professionals around the world responsible for the preservation of Indonesian cultural heritage are welcome.
