Papierfischchen und andere Schädlinge auf Archiv- und Bibliotheksgut

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) – Grundlagen, Prävention, Monitoring und Behandlung
sowie Kurzführung Staatsarchiv

Ort: Staatsarchiv des Kantons Zürich

Fortbildungsveranstaltung Donnerstag, 2. Dezember 2021


Der Kurs wendet sich an Mitarbeitende von Archiven, Bibliotheken und Museen, Studierende und Interessierte, die ihre Objekte und Sammlungen langfristig vor einem Schädlingsbefall schützen wollen. Im Fokus ist das Papierfischchen.
Folgende Themen stehen im Mittelpunkt: Erkennen von einem Befall; Bestimmung der wichtigsten heimischen Papierschädlinge; Schäd-lingskontrolle; Prävention; Giftfreie Bekämpfungsmethoden.
Referent: Dr. Pascal Querner ist Biologe und auf integrierte Schäd-lingskontrolle und Bekämpfung spezialisiert. Seit über 15 Jahren be-treut er zahlreiche Museen im In- und Ausland und gibt regelmässig Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Kurse (z.B. Österreich, Deutsch-land, Sri Lanka, Oman, Hong Kong). Er ist auch Lektor an der Uni-versität für Angewandte Kunst und Wissenschaftler am Naturhistori-schen Museum in Wien.
Ausserdem haben Sie die Gelegenheit hinter die Kulissen des Staatsarchivs Zürich zu schauen und erhalten einen Einblick in die Beständeerhaltung und die Restaurierungsateliers. Während der ein-stündigen Führung liegt der Fokus auf der wässrigen Tinten-
frassbehandlung mittels Calciumphytat. Dazu wurde 2019 im Zuge des Erweiterungsbaus ein Tauchbecken in Betrieb genommen, was die Bearbeitung deutlich beschleunigt hat. Ergänzend dazu erhalten Sie einen Einblick in ein von Innosuisse gefördertes Innovationspro-jekt zur Entwicklung einer wasserfreien Behandlungsmethode von Tintenfrass unter Verwendung von Nano Partikeln.

Our training program's 20th anniversary provides us with a wonderful opportunity to pause and reflect on the evolving roles and practices in contemporary art conservation. We would like to invite you to partake in this process and hope for your manifold contributions to create an engaging event for our community. Please find below a call for papers and an invitation for a symposium organized by the Bern University of the Arts.

Contemporary Art Conservation Revisited: 20 Years Later

In 2001, the first students graduated in a new specialty at the Bern University of the Arts’ conservation training program: Conservation of Modern Materials and Media. As a precursor in the field, the specialty’s launch was a response to changing contemporary artists' practices and a commitment to the preservation of artworks outside traditional disciplines, embodying unconventional technologies and materials. The necessity of a different approach to care for and treat these works of art is reflected in its curriculum, incorporating methodologies and techniques from social sciences, revisiting the importance of documentation, and establishing the significance of artistic concepts within a decision-making process.

Looking back at the last 20 years, we see shifts in the field of contemporary art conservation, which compel us to (re)define its role, questioning existing structures and modes of operating: What is a conservator of contemporary art today? What is their skillset, and has it changed over the years? What are the types of roles contemporary art conservators fulfill? How inclusive is this discipline and who has access to it? Did the discipline’s approach or areas of research shift during the years? Which new research topics have emerged? How can an institution benefit from conservators being part of the team and facilitating processes of acquisition, artist engagement, and research? And what, if we look more closely, hinders these developments in our institutions?

This two-day symposium aims to examine and debate these questions, hoping to inspire dialog between stakeholders.

We're looking for a variety of perspectives and positions to reflect on this topic and invite abstracts from conservators, collection managers, curators, educators, registrars and artists. These may include considerations on roles and values, new tools and skills needed, case studies that have brought upon changes in approach, as well as positions examining new areas of research or shifts in education programs, emphasizing different aspects of training.

The symposium will be held virtually on  Jan 27 & 28, 2022. For more information visit

Call for papers: Conserving performance, performing conservation

90-minute session for the Annual Conference of the College Art Association
Date: March 3-5, 2022 (time and date of the panel TBD)
Location: Online
Deadline to submit: September 16

How can a work of performance – ephemeral, site- and time-sensitive, possibly tied to the body of the artist – be conserved? This question has long been answered by recourse to documentation and performance “relics,” the tangible, exhibitable and, above all, collectible remains of performances. Yet in the past decade, museums have begun to acquire live artworks and restage historical ones, lending urgency to the practical as well as theoretical problems of conserving works of art long considered too ephemeral to be conservable.

As contemporary art has grown more demanding, conservation has also grown as a discipline, developing new discourses and practices that both revise and expand the conservator’s role. No longer confined behind the scenes, conservators are now routinely asked to consult on acquisitions, direct complex installations, or even creatively partake in the reinstantiation of conceptual and performance works. Conservators accordingly have a new consciousness of their influence on the work of art and thus the course of art history.

This panel will examine performance as the object of conservation, seeking contributions from scholars, conservators, archivists, curators, artists, and others who address theoretical and practical questions related to the ongoing life of performance works in institutions and beyond, as well as explorations of the conservator’s role in bringing liveness into the museum.
