Ottema-Kingma Symposium 2018: The Invisible World

Lab-based research into the applied arts

29Oct2018 10:00 - 18:00


Within art history, the technical examination of objects has made significant progress. Sensational developments have led to interesting discoveries and we can now reach conclusions about the use of materials and techniques that seemed impossible not that long ago. More sophisticated analytical techniques that allow us to determine the material composition of the objects, to see through its many layers, have contributed immensely to our knowledge about the applied arts.

On 29 October 2018, the Ottema-Kingma Foundation organises a symposium about the advances made in recent years in the technical research into the applied arts. The symposium is organised in collaboration with the Netherlands Institute for Conservation+Art+Science+ and the Radboud University. Most of the contributions will be in Dutch.
