BACK, NOW, AND THEN 2023
Understanding Dieter Roth’s POeMETRIE series
& the Age of Plastics
bridging Science and Art
The aim of this event is to bring together for the first time national and international professionals from different disciplines, such as the artists and scientists from conservation laboratories who work with modern-contemporary art to focus on the challenges related to art in the Age of Plastics, guided by a focus on the POeMETRIE series of Dieter Roth. We will examine and discuss the issues these works face, their relevance to plastic heritage in general, and how they reflect the evolution of the development of plastics.
The 2-day symposium will take place in presence; this call intends to encourage proposals for oral and poster presentations that would deepen the understanding of the following subjects:
Comprehension of materials and techniques involving plastic-based artistic objects, in particular the POeMETRIE series of Dieter Roth.
Ageing and Degradation mechanisms and conservation strategies for plastics in museum collections.
Plastic and technological development.
