Conservation and restoration on the ss Rotterdam

Students of the department Conservation and restoration of the University of Amsterdam had a workshop on the ss Rotterdam. The workshop was called ‘Identification of materials and damages, preventive conservation and first aid’. Their specialities were: Historical Interiors, Contemporary Art and Photography. They rendered first aid to Praise of the follies (Lof der Zotheid), Dreamcity (Droomstad), Jezus abates the storm (Jezus bedaart de storm), The miraculous catch of fish (De wonderbaarlijke visvangst)  and two big pictures. The intention is that the students will return to the ship for future conservation and restoration.
