On the occasion of the European Cultural Heritage Year 2018 (ECHY), the German-speaking European restorer associations within E.C.C.O. VDR (Germany), SKR (Switzerland), ÖRV (Austria) and VRKS-ARCA (South Tyrol) would like to shift the focus to the connecting elements in the European cultural region and deepen their cooperation with a joint specialist conference. The theme of the conference, ‘Trompe-l’oeil − Illusion and reality’, deals with a genre of visual arts that makes demands of conservation and restoration in an interdisciplinary fashion. It provides an opportunity to discuss a variety of themes and materials for “deceiving the eye” from many artistic disciplines with inspiring individual solutions.

Our world is no longer conceivable without digitality. It characterises both our work routines and our private lives equally. Digitality opens up possibilities and makes many things much easier, but it is at the same time seductive and influences thought and action. Critical reflection on its benefits is therefore an important basic ability, which people today need to acquire. The “Denkmal Digital” (digital monument) seminar of the European monument protection association Europa Nostra examines these questions with a view to monument preservation, whereby one area of focus is on questions of the digital distribution and mediation of content, goals and ideas relating to monument preservation. What is the digital monument, and to what purposes do we actually digitalise monument preservation? These are the core questions.
