“Preserving the old: Anti-ageing in the museum”

How is a 100-year-old skull restored? How do you transport a four-metre-long Baining mask into the exhibition? And how do you preserve the bright hues of colourful feathers?

Mareike Mehlis answers these and other questions in a fascinating insight into the work of conservators and methods to slow the process of things ageing. Mehlis is conservator at the Weltkulturen Museum and completed her studies in “Conservation and Restoration of Archaeological, Ethnological and Artistic Objects” in Stuttgart with a diploma in restoration.
