Conceptual art challenges the idea of traditional art conservation. How can one preserve a concept when there is material to work with? Sanneke Stigter explores the various approaches taken during the process of conservation of conceptual art in a museum context, by assessing conceptual art through the lens of conservation. This generates original research material, based on personal interviews, practice-led research, and participatory observation, revealing behind-the-scenes museum practice, and casting new light on iconic artworks.
Sanneke Stigter, AHM PhD candidate, will defend her dissertation entitled 'Between Concept and Material. Working with Conceptual Art: A Conservator’s Testimony', supervised by Prof. Deborah Cherry and Prof. Julia Noordegraaf and co-supervisors Dr Ella Hendriks and Dr Glenn Wharton (NYU).
