Science meets Art


Time: Wednesday, 29 January 2014, 9:00 - 12:30h

Venue: Internationales Begegnungszentrum (IBZ), Amalienstraße 38, 80799 München

Experts from the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen and the Chair of Restoration, Art Technology and Conservation (TU München) will shed light on their work of technical art history.


They will discuss questions such as:

  • What is an art technology?
  • How do chemists and physicists apply their knowledge and skills in the world of art?
  • How do the scientists investigate invaluable masterpieces with a minimal intervention and choose the ideal restoration and conservation approaches?
  • Can nanotechnology-based methods provide innovative solutions for the scientists in the pursuit of the artwork restoration?

As an example the experts will explain the astonishing analysis of the paintings of Ernst Kirchner and Stephan Lochner, the investigation of the textiles and the organic materials from the Medieval tombs and the Terracotta army of the First Chinese Emperor.

The workshop is organised by the student board of the NIM Graduate Program. Please send your informal registration to Ida Pavlichenko (Student Board):
