The Conservation Department,
Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich
is pleased to announce its fourth edition of the FUTURE TALKS conference series:

Processes. The Making of Design and Modern Art
Materials, Technologies and Conservation Strategies

October 28 to 30, 2015
Pinakothek of Modern, Munich, Germany

The FUTURE TALKS 015 is focussing on everything you’d always wanted to learn about the making of design and modern art and the conservation challenges related to this.
Recent advances in this field, addressing technology, design and production processes of modern materials, new and innovative treatment methods for degrading plastics as well as current research and ongoing projects will be presented. During the three day conference experts from all over the world (21 nations at the last FUTURE TALKS conference) will share their experiences and knowledge in this field.
Knowing very well that the conservation of modern materials is not only limited to design objects, a part of the programme is dedicated to conservation projects on modern/contemporary works of art.


The FUTURE TALKS 015 are focussing on:
The creative design process.
The implementation of an individual idea to three-dimensional models, mock-ups, prototypes and one-off pieces.
The materials, techniques and technologies used.
How do they influence the structural quality, the final appearance?
The  skilled specialists / companies included and the concessions which finally lead to the (serial) object.
How has the creative design process changed over time and what were / are / will be the consequences related to its conservation?
The conservator as a consultant for the designer?
The degradation of non-serial materials and its conservation.
The degradation of modern materials and its conservation.
Which role plays the original material in the conservation of models or the like?
Is there a difference between the conservation of drafts, models and final products
Exceptional use of relatively unknown or innovative / advanced  materials and how to handle / conserve them?
Innovative documentation techniques.
Practical examples of the conservation of the virtual modern design processes.
