This month, we will present the Open for Renovation project at denkmal, the biannual trade fair for conservation, restoration and old building renovation in Leipzig. The international conservation fair is a chance to present the Center and its activities to the global conservation community, discover new technologies in the field of conservation, and expand the circle of partners who support our bilateral workshops. The Open for Renovation project promotes conservation values, craftsmanship, and contemporary research, and reflects a meaningful goal of the Israeli-German effort to establish the White City Center in Tel Aviv. Our booth at the fair is inspired by the idea of the open renovation, featuring a presentation of various materials and physical models, promoting traditional crafts and a sustainable vision of preservation, and hosting some of the German Meisters who participated in the workshops.
