Survey for PhD research

Survey for PhD research on the role of conservation within contemporary art collections (in French and English)

To the attention of heads of contemporary art collection and conservators (restorers)

Following a first succesful launching, completed all around the world (Luxembourg, Iceland, Belgium, France, Germany, Austria, Armenia, Canada, Chile, Portugal, New Zeeland, Holland, USA, Switzerland, Denmark, Greece, Australia, … ), I contact you back about this international survey to ask your participation to this second round. This research will be published and the results will be sent to all the participants.

This is a research on the conservation-restoration’s role within contemporary art collections, conducted in the context of a PhD in Art Sciences at the University of Liege and the Ecole Superieure des Arts Saint-Luc of Liege (Belgium). Following a first study conducted within a reduced number of european contemporary art collections, I would like to propose you a more extensive survey, which intends to accomplish a complete analysis.

In a first phase, the results of this investigation will permit me to establish an objective diagnosis of the current situation of the conservation in contemporary art collections. Secondly, they will also allow me to suggest an efficient and relevant approach of the study of the conservation in situ, according to the needs highlighted.

Your participation will allow to gain unprecedented insight of the situation of conservation within contemporary art collections. The survey duration is approximately 40 minutes and consists mostly of closed-ended questions. It is available in French and in English. The anonymous data obtained will be treated with high confidentiality.

May I ask you to help me by completing this online survey and/or by contributing to diffuse it within your local or international professional network of private, public and company collections ?
