Art, Conservation and Authenticities: Material, Concept, Context
Erma Hermens, Tina Fiske
Archetype Publications, 2009 - Art - 266 pages
"The papers presented in this volume focus on a series of conservation 'flashpoints'-- painted works, drawings, sculpture, installations, new media, performance, interiors and historic houses, cultural objects-- and revolve around three key areas considered vital in establishing or vouchsafing an artwork's 'authenticity': material, concept and context. A wide range of approaches, some object-based, some more conceptual and philosophical, demonstrate that although the term authenticity is generally employed in the singular, the values associated with it are multiple, multilayered and often competing. The papers, each in their own way, evaluate the critical potential of the pluralised form, 'authenticities', creating a platform for a continuous discussion on this important and fascinating theme"--Page 4 of cover.
