Annotation

On the occasion  of the 25th  anniversary of teaching restoration in Litomyšl, we would  like to look back at what  point restoration, cultural  heritage preservation as well as education in the  field have reached in the  past  quarter-century.  Regarding the  school in Litomyšl, it has obviously undergone a significant development; it was affected by several factors, such as the  gradual growth of the  institution and  its transformation into  a faculty as a part  of the University of Pardubice, but also by the general development of the Czech Republic which had been  in the process  of incorporation in the free European environment.

The past  quarter-century has been  characterized by the development of the field of resto- ration as a whole not  only in Litomyšl and  the Czech Republic  but  also all over the world. Restoration has become more  closely interconnected with  other areas  of human  activity, such as technical branches, humanities or science.  The main  motif,  as well as the  aim of the conference, is to promote such development and  current trends in the field of cultural heritage preservation.

Topics

• new theories and approaches in the field of cultural  heritage preservation

• innovative procedures, methods and technologies in the care of tangible cultural  heritage

• restoration and cultural  heritage preservation in the past,  today and in the future

• pitfalls  of restoration and cultural  heritage preservation

(What would  I do in a better way now?)
