A valuable starting point for anyone concerned with the preservation of contemporary art.” Art Newspaper
The conservation of contemporary art is both an understudied and extremely important topic. . . . This volume . . . has short chapters dedicated to pertinent issues (new materials, methodological problems, degradation), techniques (cleaning, inpainting, visual reintegration), and conservation of installation art, conceptual art, and Internet art. . . . Highly recommended.”Choice
