Master in Contemporary Art Conservation and Restoration

The Master in Contemporary Art Conservation and Restoration is a project undertaken jointly by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and Museo Reina Sofía with the aim of creating a new educational space in Spain. The Master (Magíster Universitario en Conservación y Restauración) analyses the strategies and criteria that come into play in the conservation and restoration of contemporary art, using a variety of methodologies including the examination of case studies, in which not only restorers participate but also all the other parties involved: artists, conservators, engineers, exhibition set-up teams and experts in different media.
