International Seminar : Virtual Museums and Photographic Heritage

April 29, 2016


04 May 2016

Organized by:Organisé par :
Photoconsortium, Italy

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Pisa, Italy

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
4 May 2016, Pisa (Italy), Palazzo Lanfranchi, Museum of Graphics
2.30 pm – 6.30 pm (free entrance)

Virtual museums are not the simple transposition of a real museum on the Internet. They are not only archives of digitized cultural objects. Virtual museums are instead complex and interactive systems that allow access to a broader level of knowledge, experience, emotions.

What role can the photographic heritage play in this new context of exhibitions and digital services? What changes must implement the photographic archives to meet the new challenges of the digital world? Why should creative industries feel attracted by the photographic heritage?

The seminar will offer the opportunity to hear the opinion of technical and academic experts, to observe demonstrations of innovative museum services, and to learn about the collections of archive members of Photoconsortium, the International Association for the enhancement of photographic heritage.

Participants are invited to enjoy an aperitif at the end of the seminar.

Microscopic techniques to study mineral materials in cultural heritage: A workshop for the optimal use of polarized light microscopy and SEM to better understand building materials and their defects


fromdu 27 June 2016 toau 01 July 2016

Organized by:Organisé par :
University of Applied Arts Vienna, BDA – Federal Monuments Authority Austria, Austria

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Wien, Austria

Description :
BDA – Scientific Laboratory and Dpt. for Conservation and Restoration
A-1030 Vienna, Arsenal, Objekt 15, Tor 4
Organizers and lecturers
Prof. Dr. Johannes Weber, petrographer, University of Applied Arts Vienna/Austria
Dr. Farkas Pintér, geologist, BDA, Vienna/Austria
Dipl.-Geol. Thomas Köberle, freelance geologist, Dresden/Germany
Background and aim of the Workshop
The analysis of the mineral material of architectural and sculptural objects in the laboratory is frequently a challenging task for conservation scientists, building researchers and archaeologists. It includes the identification and characterization of stones and mortars as well as the assessment of their structural and material failures. Within the range of various methods of analysis employed, thin section petrography, especially when combined with SEM, offers a powerful method to gain relevant information on historic and modern building materials. As for most imaging analyses, the success of this approach does not only depend on the quality of the sections, but most of all on the skill of the expert in selecting the most appropriate mode of observation and interpreting the results.
Planned as a platform for scientists and experts with a background in mineral artefacts, the five-day workshop is aimed at demonstrating and discussing the potential of light microscopic and SEM techniques in the field of restoration, building research, conservation science and archaeology-archaeometry. The main focus is laid on the thin section analysis of mortars, plasters, concrete and stone by applying transmitted and reflective light. Compo-sition,workmanship and degradation will be discussed.
