The 8th Interim meeting of the ICOM-CC working group Art Technological Source Research at the Cologne Institute of Conservation Sciences (CICS) will be held at the Cologne Institute of Conservations Sciences (CICS) from 26th-27th September 2019. “Reflecting on reconstructions: the role of sources and performative methods in art technological studies” will focus on reconstructions and re-enactment. Historic sources (written, oral, but also images or instruments) provide important information on artists’ materials, techniques and methods of work. At least since the Comte de Caylus‘s 18th century attempt to understand a lost artistic technique – encaustic painting – by practical experiments on the basis of Pliny’s description of that Roman art, “reconstruction” has been a valuable companion in historical and philological research of art technological sources. It was not by accident that the first symposium of the Art Technological Source Research working group held in 2004 was devoted to Sources and Reconstructions. In recent years there have been interesting developments in the methodology of reconstruction and re-enactment. New questions have been posed, new disciplines have become involved. Therefore it seems only right to focus again on this topic and the state of the art, fifteen years after the establishment of the Art Technological Source Research group.
For the symposium Reflecting on Reconstructions we are interested in contributions that use reconstruction, re-enactment or replication in research related to art technological sources, written or other. For complete information download the call for papers or go to the ICOM-CC working group page.
