Conceptual, material and technical issues surround the production of mural paintings in the 20th and 21st centuries. Graffiti, community mural paintings, the use of materials from industry, the new approaches in the ways in which buildings are conceived, the constant transformation of public space. All this diversity creates a new scenario that imposes specific considerations regarding the study, documentation, treatment and preservation of such particular artworks.
The Conference mcmp2012 will focus on the following topics:
The 3rd APTCCARN Meeting (Asia Pacific Twentieth Century Conservation Art Network) will be held from Monday 23 April to Wednesday 25 April at Silpakorn University, Nakornpathom in Thailand. ‘The Conservation of Material Culture in Tropical Climates’ Meeting is a targeted forum for the dissemination and discussion of regionally relevant preservation solutions for Southeast Asia’s vast cultural record.

What happens to media art when the Internet environment for which it was conceived, changes? Can works that were once developed for the PC now be shown on an iPad? The exhibition Digital Art Works - The Challenges of Conservation at the ZKM | Media Museum fundamentally explores questions related to collecting, exhibiting, and maintaining computer–based art works and makes the work concerning digital conservation visible.
