Discussion
Winkelmeyer, Iris / Bushart, Elisabeth / Nagy, Eleonora

Iris Winkelmeyer moderated the second session: Replacements, which included presentations by Eleonora Nagy and Elisabeth Bushart (please see separate videos for these presentations). They both shared approaches in the conservation of minimal and serial art. Winkelmeyer moderated the lively discussion which highlighted the challenges in reconciling differing opinions by artists: one approach for market-driven treatments vs. another for works in an institution.
