In the workshop
« Our top priority is clearly to prevent damage. Before a work is loaned out, for example, we assess whether its condition will allow it, and weigh up all the risks. » — Kerstin Mürer, Head of the Conservation and Restoration Department
Conservation project Fischli / Weiss
The ‘False Idols’ are part of the ‘Fever’ series created between 1983 and 1984 by the artist duo Fischli/Weiss. As part of the installation project that continues in the Kunsthaus Collection until May 2019, the work is being analysed and treated to conserve it – partly with public access – and will then be put on display.
Restoration and digitization of the video collection
In a multi-year restoration and digitization project in the video collection, around 260 analogue tapes are being restored, digitized and preserved in a digital long-term archive.
On official consultation days, which take place one Wednesday afternoon a month, you can make an appointment for our curators and restoration experts to appraise your works of art. We do not provide any information on trade or market prices.
