The Master Days of the CICS will take place in the Europasaal on 23. November. Our master's degree graduates will present their graduation projects there in brief lectures and provide insight into current questions and challenges of preservation and restoration sciences. The projects process various research questions on the basis of various materials and objects: paintings, books, objects of wood and modern materials, textiles, as well as wall paintings and stone objects. In addition to this, the work areas are very interdisciplinary: links are established with art history, scientific and monument preservation expertise. The graduates formulate the historical, stylistic and conographic, as well as technological and material dimensions of works of art and create concepts for preservation and restoration on this basis.
