The BGC’s Videoconference Series: Technical Art History is part of a new initiative, under the auspices of Cultures of Conservation, to connect our educational experience with partner institutions around the globe. The series is presented in conjunction with the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (MPIWG), the Freie Universität Berlin, and the University of Glasgow. The talks will take place at the MPIWG in Berlin; however, the audience at the BGC in New York will be able to watch the lectures and join the discussion live by means of a two-way video feed.

RSVP is required.
