IIC Nordic Group - NKF’s XIX International Conference
15th – 17th October 2012 Oslo, Norway
Planning to move? Processes and consequences for collections, objects and society
The main conference theme is the planned transport of objects and collections. This congress aims to be a professional commentary on society’s desire to relocate objects of cultural heritage value: collections, individual objects, buildings and other built structures.
Museums and other institutions from several Nordic countries have extensive relocation projects, either planned or underway. This initiative from the IIC Nordic Group – NKF aims to bring together the preservation community and colleagues from other professions to share knowledge and experiences on issues connected with relocation.
Full papers during the conference will be in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and English. Scandinavian presentations will be simultaneously translated to English.
