The lecture will analyse how environmental conditions such as light, temperature and relative humidity as well as packaging, transport, storage systems and insects can impact the lifetime of an artwork, hence its sustainable value. Both public institutions and private collectors are faced with challenges when conserving and managing collections. The regular monitoring of artworks provides relevant data sets that enable short term interventions and long term solutions to minimise risk and guarantee social, historical and financial value.
