“Unless we understand a certain material–metal or resin and plastic–understanding the process that turn it from ore, for example–we can never develop and define form that's appropriate.“
–Jonathan Ive
 

After an overwhelming response to our last four FUTURE TALKS conferences (2009–15) with almost 900 participants from 25 nations we are eagerly looking forward to our 5th anniversary: the silver edition—the FUTURE TALKS 017 conference!

FUTURE TALKS is a groundbreaking platform for interdisciplinary discussions and exchange of experiences in the conservation of modern materials. With the focus on an increasing number of contributions related to technologies and modified analysis techniques, our goal is to improve the decision-making processes in the conservation of modern materials.

FUTURE TALKS helps to raise public awareness to the fact that even serial products are faced with a gradual degradation process of material which can result at worst in a loss of cultural identity and history.

Recent advancement in this field regarding 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 will share their experiences and knowledge in this field.

The conference will be accompanied by a panel discussion with international renowend experts in the field of conservation of the modern:
–Anna Lagana, Getty Conservation Institute, Los Angeles
–Brenda Keneghan, Victoria and Albert Museum, London
–Christian Scheidemann, Contemporary Conservation Ltd. New York
–Elena Gomez Sanchez, Deutsches Bergbaumuseum Bochum
–Friederike Waentig, TH Cologne
–Thea van Oosten, Amsterdam
–Tim Bechthold, Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum, Munich

 

Moreover we proudly present three design keynote lectures on innovative materials and technologies and extraordinary design ideas by:
–Efrat Friedmann, Material Scout, Munich
–John Hamilton, Global Director Design, Coalesse Munich
–Maarten Baas, Hertogenbosch

 

The conference and the associated publication will be in English language.
