The restorers treat aging and damage to works of art. Its functionality and long-term preservation are also taken into account when choosing the right treatments.

The Protocol Room offers solutions based on its thorough approach and experience in this area:

        • Restoration treatments for modern paintings
        • Restoration treatments for contemporary sculptures
        • Maintenance of installation of works of art


Traditional artist materials, utensils, new technologies and electronic media: all conceivable products from our environment are used to create a work of art today that will be preserved and presented in art collections tomorrow.

In parallel with this, it is often thought out how all these unique creations will relate over time:

        • Advice and assistance for museums, artists and collections on conservation
        • Preparation of condition reports for sale, loan, exhibitions and own management
        • Cleaning, fixing and maintaining contemporary materials in works of art
        • Packaging and supervising (inter)national transports

Protocol and documentation

The protocol is a document that describes how a work of art should be presented, preserved and restored if necessary. It reflects the strategy that is achievable in the long term for both the work and the people or parties involved.

Starting from this vision (and decisions about it), a number of tools are made that are necessary for the installation in question. The conservation protocol consists of text and materials that will be the manual to be able to continue to show certain contemporary works of art in the long term.

The protocol is drawn up in collaboration with the artist and in consultation with the client.

        • Drawing up protocols and scores
        • Artist interviews and artist boxes
        • Supervising art integration projects for companies and the public sector


Researching contemporary techniques, materials and strategies is an inseparable part of our practice. Based on an extensive international network, development and knowledge sharing are carried out:

        • Research projects with artists in creation and conservation
        • Scientific research is regularly carried out on paint layers and modern materials. The chemical composition and properties are determined in collaboration with the KIK (Royal Institute of Cultural Heritage)
        • Participation in conferences and workshops to follow the latest developments
        • Internships for students in restoration and conservation, arts and visual arts
        • Creation of scientific publications
