IPERION HS and E-RIHS webinar series

04.05.2021, 15:00 CET

Webinar #02: FIXLAB – Ivory research
followed by hints and tips on FIXLAB access. Moderated by Matija Strlič
Speakers: Ina Reiche and Rémi Petitcol

FIXLAB is the IPERION HS platform that provides access for the Heritage Science (HS) community to key fixed research facilities and to the associated scientific expertise.
Access is offered to researchers in Heritage Science to help address the major questions raised by the materiality of Heritage Science artefacts in terms of their genesis, manufacturing processes, alterations, conservation and preservation. The unique FIXLAB services offered to the HS community embrace advanced state‐of‐the‐art instrumentation; dedicated facilities with teams of experts in the field of micro‐analysis of HS artefacts; novel developments resulting from IPERION HS joint research activities to improve access progressively; development of both new sample‐positioning devices at a micro‐scale and software tools for the integration of imaging data.

Ina Reiche, research director at the French National Research Centre, will present the topic “Palaeolithic ivory artefacts investigated by particle physics”, while Rémi Petitcol, European Policy Officer at the French Center for Research and Restoration of Museums of France (C2RMF), will talk about “FIXLAB: a catalyst for Heritage Science”.

Registration opens soon: http://www.iperionhs.eu/7880-2/

Donnerstagabend im Kunsthistorischen Museum

DO, 13. MAI, 18 UHR
Maybe I manifested it
Präsentation der Videoarbeit Maybe I manifested it mit mit den Künstlerinnen Yul Koh und Sophie Anna Stadler
Diese Videoarbeit, der die Ausstellung maybe manifested ihren Titel verdankt, zeigt die Künstlerinnen als doppelköpfiges Hybridwesen aus geistlicher und weltlicher Macht, beim Versuch sich der Reichskrone zu nähern, sich ins Museum einzufügen, sich in die Geschichte einzuordnen oder sich auch dagegen zu sträuben. Durch das Unterbrechen von eigenen Aufnahmen mit Found Footage (gefundenem Filmmaterial) entsteht ein Teppich aus verschiedenen Wahrnehmungsund Referenzebenen, eine Art Bewusstseinsstrom, der die Betrachter*innen einlädt, zu assoziieren.
Anmeldung zum Zoom-Gespräch unter talks@khm.at. Bitte geben Sie im Betreff “maybe manifested” an. Sie erhalten die Zugangsdaten per E-Mail im Laufe des Veranstaltungstages.

#3 Dissociation

Join us at AICCMs new online forum 10 AGENTS OVER 10 MONTHS. Developed to explore the traditional 10 Agents of Deterioration and expand to encompass relevant and topical themes – climate change, bushfires, repatriation, and COVID – the series will run from March to December, covering one Agent per month. 

Conservation relies on material evidence and continuous assessment of the materials and techniques being used for monitoring or treating heritage. Conservators benefit from sharing experiences but conservation documentation records are not widely accessible. In this session the barriers for sharing documentation records will be discussed alongside the ethical responsibilities of conservation organisations towards the profession and the public. The role of professional bodies is considered alongside their long-overdue synergy.

Registrations opening soon

Watercolor Maptiles | Behind the Design Series

18.05.2021, 12:30 Eastern Time (18:30 CET)

Join Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum for the latest installment in the Behind the Design program series. Curator Andrea Lipps, conservator Jessica Walthew, and Stamen Design’s founder and creative director Eric Rodenbeck will discuss Watercolor Maptiles—a web-based, open-source mapping tool that displays OpenStreetMap’s data with the hand-hewn textures of watercolor paint.

Launched by Stamen Design in 2012, Watercolor Maptiles is part of the design firm’s larger web-based cartographic project to create accessible, open-source tools that present public data in highly visual ways. To explore and use the map, users can zoom in and out, enter a location into the geo search bar, or just scroll around and create images for embedding into their own open-source projects.
