European project:
Preservation and Presentation of Installation Art

The Inside Installations project asks - How can we safeguard these expressions of our contemporary visual culture so that they can be experienced by future generations?

For contemporary art museums this is a key question as they struggle to address their responsibilities in relation to an art form which is significantly different to traditional objects.

The complexity of installations calls for a greater interdisciplinary approach in their conservation, production and installation, drawing on a wide body of expertise. This is a new area for conservation and collections management and one which is ideally suited to a collaborative approach in the development of guidelines and models of good practice.
