AbstractThe course provides an overview of theory formation in heritage conservation. The focus is on European history and German-language texts.
ObjectiveThe aim of the course is to familiarise students with the essential subject areas, the most important protagonists and lines of argumentation from antiquity to the 21st century, and to contrast the different approaches to thought and their development
ContentIn order to get to know the formation of theory, its paths and detours, the most important terms and persons in the history of monument conservation are introduced. Based on various texts, the history of the protection of architectural monuments since antiquity is illuminated. Further focal points in the history of monument preservation were during the Enlightenment, the French Revolution and in the process of the formation of nation states. The discourse on the concept and practice of monument conservation as we understand it today was led by a number of conservators in the German-speaking world around 1900. War-related destruction and the incipient building boom in Europe led to modern debates on the theory of monuments, which are still relevant today. Dealing with monument values is not an end in itself; it can be essential for the preservation of the monument or for historical mediation. Critical positions on the tasks, goals or practices of heritage preservation can only be developed against the background of a knowledge of its historical approaches.
