Nous sommes heureux d’accueillir Muriel Verbeeck, de nationalité belge, qui effectuera des recherches à l’ICCROM jusqu’à la fin avril 2017.
Professeur-chercheur à l’Ecole Supérieure des Arts Saint-Luc de Liège et à l’Université de Liège (Unité de recherche mixte « Art, Architecture et patrimoine »), Muriel Verbeeck, Ph.D., poursuit ses recherches dans les Archives de l’ICCROM et à la Bibliothèque.
Son travail porte à la fois sur l’histoire des théories de la conservation-restauration (en particulier la contribution de Paul Philippot), et sur la conceptualisation de la restauration en Art contemporain. Son séjour à l’ICCROM nourrit d’une part ses enseignements (Déontologie, Histoire et théories de la restauration), de l’autre, une série de communications et publications, synthétisées dans un projet de monographie (Conceptual tools for conservators).
L’ICCROM est heureux d’accueillir les chercheurs espagnols Luis Pérez-Prat Durbán et María del Valle Gómez de Terreros Guardiola, professeurs titulaires auprès de l’Université Pablo de Olavide de Séville.
Financé par le ministère espagnol de l’éducation, de la culture et des sports, leur projet de recherche conjoint porte spécifiquement sur les critères internationaux appliqués à la restauration des vestiges archéologiques et des monuments en ruines ; la destruction intentionnelle du patrimoine culturel, notamment dans le cas du Mali, de la Libye, de l’Irak et de la Syrie ; le patrimoine culturel et l’Holocauste et la protection des ruines inscrites sur la Liste du patrimoine mondial. Le projet vise à analyser l’efficacité des réglementations culturelles en matière de protection du patrimoine et à évaluer si les législations actuelles remplissent leurs objectifs de protection du patrimoine.
