Welcome to the Deffner & Johann-Booth

The event days are entirely dedicated to international and interdisciplinary exchange, as well as a variety of projects and activities that Deffner & Johann has been happy to support and promote as a sponsor since the founding of the VDR.
Once again, we would like to invite you to our stand to to find out about product innovations as well as tried and tested products and to discuss restoration solutions with us.

Work histories and transformations

As a professional and technical association, the VDR represents the interests of around 3,000 restorers of all disciplines in Germany. The main concerns of the VDR are the protection and proper preservation of art and cultural assets while respecting their material, art-historical and aesthetic significance.

The conference deals with the multifaceted changes to which art and cultural objects from all centuries are subjected, whether intentionally or unintentionally.
For Thursday and Friday, 32 lectures will present and discuss various forms of alteration to art objects, e. g. by the creator himself, by restorative measures, due to chemical ageing processes or also for ethical and political reasons, and how to deal with them.

The conference brochure including the programme can be found here.

We look forward to the 11th Restorers' Day with you and wish you a wonderful time in Kassel.
