October 28, 2015 – 30, 2015
 
After an overwhelming response to our last three FUTURE TALKS conferences we are looking forward to another extensive three-day-congress on international research projects and case studies on active conservation treatments and technology of modern materials in design and modern art.
 
The FUTURE TALKS 015 is focussing on everything you’d always wanted to learn about the making of design and modern art and the conservation challenges related to this.
Recent advances in this field, addressing technology, design and production processes of modern materials, new and innovative treatment methods for degrading plastics as well as current research and ongoing projects will be presented. During the three day conference experts from all over the world (21 nations at the last FUTURE TALKS conference) will share their experiences and knowledge in this field.
Knowing very well that the conservation of modern materials is not only limited to design objects, a part of the programme is dedicated to conservation projects on modern/contemporary works of art.
