Workshop on Historic Textiles in Museums
Professors from the National Museum Institute New Delhi and the University of Applied Arts Vienna gave a workshop on ‘Historic Textiles in Museums – Conservation & Display, Museology & Education’, at the National Museum New Delhi from February 11-15. The workshop included lectures and discussions as well as practical work on some of the museum’s artifacts.
This five-day event is part of Austria’s broader collaboration with India in the field of heritage preservation, which encompasses the restoration of buildings, textiles, objects and documents. For the first time also professors and experts from the fields of museology and museum education took part. Both sides benefited tremendously from their experience and exchange practices.
