Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: This thesis focuses on two large-sized Cibachrome photographs on DIBOND® plates of photographer Max
Schulz. The first chapter provides a detailed description of the photographic technique and of the DIBOND®
carrier as well as an analysis of all the materials used for the artworks. After assessing and documenting all
damages that needed treatment two damages are discussed in separate chapters. One chapter examines
ways to straighten a deformed DIBOND® corner and the second one deals with the reconstruction and
inpainting of the glossy photo surfaces, which have scratches, fingerprints and adhesive tape damage. The
thesis concludes with a conservation proposal for both photographs.
