"Preservation issues surrounding contemporary photographs"
International course
Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage (ICN)
Instituut Collectie Nederland, Amsterdam
Sep 23-24, 27-28 (4 days)

Content: The goal of this workshop is to provide the curator or
collection manager with a general understanding of the most
important preservation aspects surrounding contemporary photographs.
The identification of contemporary processes--including chromogenic,
silver dye bleach, dye diffusion, dye transfer, photograms and a
general overview of digital prints--will be taught and technical
information concerning finishing techniques (laminates and "Diasec"
face-mounting) for contemporary photographs will be provided.
Aspects of deterioration surrounding contemporary photographs and
their finishing techniques will be discussed as well as preservation
standards for the long-term storage of contemporary photographs.

The standards for exhibition lighting and exhibition materials will
also be discussed and various mounting supports and hanging systems
will be examined. A practical part of the workshop will centre on
large format works and participants will be encouraged to share
their ideas and experiences. Since there are few standard answers in
this area the goal of the practicum is to arrive at a list of
working methods and techniques for the installation, storage and
transport of large works.
