Research themes
The project’s research goals were to develop guidelines for the care and administration of installation works of art. In concordance with the case studies of 33 installation works, additional research studies were carried out in those areas of conservation that are considered key for installation art. Most of those studies are innovative and inter-disciplinary in their approach. Using the expertise of a large number of professionals and the outcomes of the 33 case studies, this project provided a unique opportunity to investigate the problems at hand. A rich compendium of guidelines, models and reflective documents are the result of collaborative research.
Each of the project’s co-organisers held the responsibility for one of the special research activities and organised a seminar/workshop on this topic during the project. The themes were distributed amongst co-organisers on the basis of professional interest and experience. Project partners participated in special research studies across the five main themes.

Five research themes of the project are the following
Preservation strategies
Artist’s participation
Documentation & archiving strategies
Theory & semantics
Knowledge management & information exchange
