The aim of this poster is to emphasize the complexity of authenticity in relation to heritage objects and monuments. It demonstrates a dynamic range of historic objects that conservators will be faced with during their careers. It emphasizes that heritage objects are not singular (all about artistic creativity) but are charged with layers of tangible and intangible meanings which are connected to the history and traditions of various communities.
This post refers to coursework done for ARCLG141 (2015-16), one of the core courses of the UCL MA Principles of Conservation. As part of their assessed work for this course, students were asked to design and produce a poster communicating specific aspects of conservation. We hope you enjoy our work! Comments are most welcome.
