"Restoration Theories and Methods from 1945 to the present day"
Online course
March - June, 2014
(English or Spanish)

The course focuses on the history of restoration as explained
through the different restoration theories and their practical
application in Italy and elsewhere since the late 1940s.  The course
also deals with colour theory in order to better understand the
practical application of retouch methods that will be introduced in
great detail. Commentaries regarding the most important
international charters on conservation and restoration will help in
questioning the present view of restoration and to do justice to
these texts in daily practice.

In the fourth module many examples of restoration practice
illustrate the acceptance and the development of the presented
Italian restoration theories in the German-speaking area.

Module 5 and 6 present the texts of major international charters for
preservation / restoration. Comments and discussions of the author
encourage to critical engagement with these texts, especially in
view of their practical relevance.

This course motivates to reflect on the examples shown in the
context of current restoration concepts.

The author is professor at the University of Applied Sciences and
Arts, Faculty of Architecture, Engineering and Conservation in the
subjects History and Theory of Conservation, Art History. Prof. Dr.
Ursula Schadler-Saub herself will coach the course through e-mail.
The tutor of the course, the conservator Barbara Hentschel W.A.
