The conservators working in the ALBERTINA Museum’s Conservation Department are entrusted with the preventative, preservative and restorative attendance upon the collection holdings. It is their task to document the state of repair or disrepair of the artworks and to set appropriate measures to stabilize that state and to optimize the exterior visual appearance of the objects.
In collaboration with natural science faculties and institutes of education connected to the subject, as well as the industry, the Conservation Department of the ALBERTINA contributes to new insights and to the development of innovative techniques and products.
