Conservation Strategies for Modern & Contemporary Art: Recent developments in the Netherlands was written by IJsbrand Hummelen, senior researcher at the Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage (ICN). In 1939 the Dutch artist Reuter sent out a questionnaire to his colleagues asking for instructions on the maintenance of contemporary paintings. Since then, a range of interdisciplinary and collaborative projects for the conservation of contemporary art followed in the Netherlands. This article discusses the growing importance of documenting the artist’s intent and the role of museum staff as performer in the execution and conservation of the works.
