Microfading Workshop and User Meeting

The Rathgen-Forschungslabor of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin organizes a Microfading Workshop and User Meeting on the 7th and 8th November 2016

Polychrome artworks are prone to change their colour due to illumination. Light sources, photo sensitivity and exposure of the object have to be considered in order to optimize the lighting for a longer preservation of the exposed object. Microfading testing (MFT) is a technique which allows evaluating the photo sensitivity of an object.
