ICON Launches Call for proposals: Conservation and Philosophy: Intersections and Interactions

This two-day event, organised in collaboration with the International Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works, wants to bring together interested researchers from the fields of conservation and philosophy to discuss authenticity, replicas, and the ethics of conservation/restoration. The symposium seeks to facilitate interdisciplinary discussion and communication between scholars concerned with aesthetics, conservation and replication, the philosophy of art and its interaction with art restoration, and the instantiation of forgeries and their relationship to ethical and institutional concerns.

The event will be held in Hastings, East Sussex, UK on November 26th and 27th 2020. The deadline for the submission of proposals is Friday 7 February 2020, 5pm.
