The event on February 22, 17:00 CET / 11am EST will feature an introduction by Hanna B. Hölling and a panel discussion with Hannah B Higgins, Gregory Zinman, Andrea Gyorody and Megan Mefcalf, all contributors to the recent volume Object-Event-Performance: Art, Materiality, and Continuity Since the 1960s (2022; ed. by Hanna B.

Object-Event-Performance: Art, Materiality, and Continuity Since the 1960s (2022; ed. Hanna B. Hölling) considers a selection of post-1960s artworks that have all been chosen for their instability, changeability, performance elements, and processes that pose questions about their relationship to conservation practices. With chapters by Hannah B Higgins, Hanna B. Hölling, Gregory Zinman, Andrea Gyorody, Alison D’Amato, Megan Metcalf, Rebecca Uchill, Susanne Neubauer, Beryl Graham and Johannes Hedinger, this book aims to become a welcome resource on contemporary conservation for art historians, scholars of performance, dance, theater and museum studies, curators, and conservators. The book is published by Bard Graduate Center, within the series Cultural Histories of the Material World (series editor: Peter Miller), and is available from the University of Chicago Press (PDF and hardcover).
