“Invisible mending?”
With Mareike Mehlis and Kristina Werner (Conservators, Weltkulturen Museum)

Why is barkcloth beaten? What happens during contact with water? And are tears or cracks mended in the museum? On this tour, you can find out the answers directly from our conservators Mareike Mehlis and Kristina Werner. They explain their approach to restoring and presenting the barkcloth materials for our exhibition AND THE BEAT GOES ON….

Kristina Werner holds an M.A. in the restoration and conservation of art and cultural artefacts from the University of Cologne, and has specialised in objects made of wood and modern materials. Mareike Mehlis studied in Stuttgart and holds a diploma (equivalent to an M.A.) in the conservation and restoration of archaeological and ethnological artefacts and craftwork objects.
