The international research project and symposium Modern Art: Who Cares?

In 1995 thirteen partners worked jointly on the development of models for the registration and preservation of contemporary art and on the testing of these in practice. This was based on a reassessment of the existing, traditional philosophies on conservation and an evaluation of new developments and points of view. The symposium drew 450 participants from all over the world. The results of the study and the symposium were published in Modern Art: Who Cares?, which has become an internationally recognized standard reference.
