NANOFORART Brede Workshop

The National Museum of Denmark is a partner in the EU-FP7 research project NANOFORART which focuses on the use of nano-materials in the preservation of cultural heritage. The National Museum has contributed to the project by testing systems developed for conserving wall paintings.

In order to disseminate the knowledge gained in the NANOFORART-project and to communicate possible advantages of utilizing nano-materials in wall painting conservation we will organise a workshop on the premises of the National Museum in Brede June 12, 2014.  The workshop will deal with the consolidation of wall paintings with “nanolime” and the removal of degraded polymeric consolidants from wall paintings  with the aid of micro-emulsions and hydrogels.
