Human Anatomical Preparations

11 to 12 November 2021 in Dresden (Germany).

The Dresden University of Fine Arts (HfBK Dresden) will host an international symposium in the degree course of conservation, entitled

Human Anatomical Preparations

History, Manufacturing Techniques and Ethics in Conservation

The aim of the symposium is to examine the current state of anatomical and pathological collections, specifically the human preparations stored and exhibited there. For this purpose, curators, conservators-restorers, anatomists, preparators, historians, etc. from numerous European countries will come together to address the following topics and questions: What was the significance of anatomical and pathological preparations in the respective historical context and what is their significance today? How does the transformation process of an actively-used teaching collection to a museum collection take place? What are the ethical requirements for the usage of human anatomical and pathological preparations for teaching and exhibition purposes today? What questions arise from this with regard to the preservation, conservation and restoration of human anatomical preparations? What influence do the historical manufacturing, preparation and conservation techniques of anatomical specimens have on the current state of preservation and to what extent have these contexts been researched at all? What expertise is available today and how can curators, preparators, conservators-restorers and other scientists work together for a better preservation of anatomical preparations and collections in the future?

Participation in the symposium is possible by registration via: HAP@hfbk-dresden.de

Start: 11th of November 2021 at 3 p.m.

End: 12th of November 2021 at 10:30 p.m.
