    Esteban Villanueva’sThe Basi Revolt paintings of Ilocos: Unlocking their material evidence
    Tse, N ; Balarbar, RA ; Esguerra, R ; Labrador, AMPTP (National Museum of the Philippines, 2020-11-01)
    The series of fourteen works that comprise Esteban Villanueva’s The Basi Revolt is examined historically and physically to have a clear idea of the paintings’ material authenticity, particularly necessary for conservation treatment. Among the questions dealt with involved the production and authorship, the extent of variation of the surface and paint layers, as well as the pigment types across all fourteen works. As The Basi Revolt is a series that depicts an important historical event in the Philippines, the course of conservation needs to be assessed as a whole, to reinstate a unified visual narrative. Methods used to attempt to answer these involved the examination of available historical records and the use of reflected raking and ultra-violet lights, microscopic magnification, and elemental analysis. To have a much stronger evidence-based understanding of The Basi Revolt, as well as of other early 19th century paintings by Filipino artists, setting up a database of the range of materials available and used during that time is essential for their conservation.

    Fundamentals of Painting Conservation and Decision Making = พื้นฐานของการอนุรักษ์ภาพ จิตรกรรมและ การตัดสินใจในการอนุรักษ์
    Tse, N ; Poonthongdeewatthana, O (Thailand Academy of Social Sciences, Office of the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Higher Education, Science, and Innovation, 2023-09-01)
    What is the nature of paintings and paper conservation? The act of conservation asserts values, voice and legitimacy. This leads to questions around what knowledge is important, who gets to decide what is important to conserve, and what form this takes. What is appropriate in localised contexts is often positioned within the aims of heritage and identity, and object-centred practice and scientific processes.

    Art in Limbo: Logistical challenges, cultural differences, and the complications of collections access during the pandemic
    Labrador, AMT ; Fekrsanati, F ; Schimmeroth, G (MARKK Hamburg Museum am Rothenbaum – Kulturen und Künste der Welt, 2023)
    Cultural institutions such as museums claim to take a well-informed and strategic approach to care for valued collections, protecting and preserving the material evidence of cultural heritage in line with the overall institutional goals. Although the principles and values ​​that inform such strategies, vary considerably according to context and they often do not reflect the original cultural context.

    The analytical potential of intensive field survey data: Developments in the collection, analysis and interpretation of surface ceramics within the Pontine Region Project
    de Haas, T ; Tol, G ; Meens, A ; Nazou, M ; van de Put, W (Sidestone Press, 2023)
    This paper provides a succinct overview of developments in field survey practices and artefact collection strategies within the Pontine Region Project (PRP), a long-running landscape archaeological project in central Italy. Drawing on various examples from the PRP database, we specifically aim to evaluate the increasing research intensity and artefact sampling approaches adopted in the project and their analytical contribution: first, to refine the chronological and spatial resolution of rural data and to move beyond simplistic rural site classifications; second, to systematically analyse and interpret off-site distributions; and third, to reconstruct regional systems of production and exchange. Countering critiques of the purportedly myopic character of Mediterranean survey practices, we argue that the intensive investigation of small research areas not only complements more extensive survey approaches, but is crucial to counter biases and refine generalizing trends in such datasets.

    Japanese War Memory and Transnational Activism for Indonesian Survivors of Enforced Military Prostitution During World War Two
    McGregor, K ; Budianta, M ; Tiwon, S (Palgrave Macmillan, 2023-07-28)
    In this chapter, I analyse activism relating to survivors of the so-called comfort women system, enforced military prostitution, during World War Two. The term ‘comfort women’ is highly problematic and considered offensive by many survivors, yet it continues to be the most commonly used term to describe survivors. The most well-known example of national-based activism from affected countries is the activism of the Korean Council. The second most active national group is probably ASCENT from the Philippines (Medoza, 2003). In recognition, however, of the transnational nature of activism on this issue, scholars have studied cooperation between Japanese and Korean activists and between Japanese and Chinese activists, and the role of the Korean diaspora in activism in the United States and Australia. In these studies, the authors have variously reflected on the bases of these transnational partnerships and the different positions of activists within them in relation to their national affiliations and new potential alliances that transcend the nation.

    The workshop
    Hanß, S ; Spinks, J ; Wouk, EH ; Wouk, EH ; Spinks, J (Manchester University Press, 2023-06-06)
    The painter and printmaker Albrecht Dürer is one of the most important figures of the German Renaissance. This book accompanies the first major exhibition of the Whitworth art gallery's outstanding Dürer collection in over half a century. It offers a new perspective on Dürer as an intense observer of the worlds of manufacture, design and trade that fill his graphic art. Artworks and artefacts examined here expose understudied aspects of Dürer's art and practice, including his attentive examination of objects of daily domestic use, his involvement in economies of local manufacture and exchange, the microarchitectures of local craft and, finally, his attention to cultures of natural and philosophical inquiry and learning.
