- Lecture: Reversibility in book and paper conservation.
It is in fact a revisiting of the same lecture given at the Cores Symposium, organized by Syntrawest, Vlaanderen Departement Cultuur, Jeugd en media
Is reversibility a guarantee for good conservation?
Should it be our main goal, as conservators?
A discussion of this controversial issue seen form several points of view:
– Physical phenomenon (solubility, and others).
– Theoretical point of view (revert along time).
– Linguistics (is it the right word?).
A few examples will illustrate to what extent can we apply these theoretical aspects in the conservation practice, seeking to get a final conclusion that replies to the first given questions.
