Documentation of Installation Art
Tempo Liquido
Inside Installations – 3rd Workshop
Thu, December 01, 2005 – Fri, December 02, 2005, Workshop
The ZKM is staging the 4th Workshop of the EU project on the Preservation and Presentation of Installation Art in conjunction with the Düsseldorf Restoration Centre. Among the guests will be curators and restorers from the ICN Amsterdam, the TATE London, the Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst Gent, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia Madrid, the SMBK Foundation for the Conservation of Modern Art Amsterdam and many other national and European partners in the project.

Contemporary art works, which tend to be diversified and often consist of several parts, are subsumed under the heading of installation art. They comprise a wide variety of elements, such as audiovisual and electronic media, net art and performance, which often have close spatial ties or are connected to the exhibition site.

“Plessi-Rad” case study

As it continues to spread and multiply, installation art poses new challenges to the conservation, presentation and management of collections. The Documentation and Archiving Strategies Workshop will study the experience gathered by project partners and international experts with the aim of working out new methods and standards for recording and documentation.

One of the ZKM’s contributions to this three-year research project on the maintenance of installation art, which is the most extensive of its kind to date, is the case study on Fabrizio Plessi’s »Tempo Liquido«.
