  • Aims and scope

    As an interactive magazine and platform, CeROArt is devoted to a multidisciplinary approach to questions of Conservation, exhibition, Restoration of works of Art. It wants to be a place of reflection and interaction between historians, art historians, philosophers, museologists, scientists interested in cultural heritage, curators and restorers, regardless of whether they are representatives of the museum community or students in one of those disciplines.

  • Profile

    CeROArt is a scientific e-magazine supported by the Ecole supérieure des Arts Saint-Luc of Liège, the Centre interrégional de Conservation Restauration du Patrimoine (CICRP, Marseille) and the Stichting Restauratie Atelier Limburg (SRAL, Maastricht). It has two proofreading committees and accepts articles for publication relating to the Conservation, exposition, Restoration of Objets d’Art. Each issue covers a full account of a main topic which is approached from several angles. Authors are free to suggest an article «off topic».

    CeROArt, which is only published after having been proofread by two committees, wants to receive original articles of the highest quality on the mentioned subjects, which should also lead to a multiplication of perspectives, to cross-cultural interchanges, exchanges, improved dialogue and interdisciplinarity. Using the flexibility of online support, CeROArt wants to become an information platform with direct response to the latest topics in the fields of practical experience, profession and training.

    CeROArt is a bi-annual publication which offers not only a full account of a specific subject (see heading «call for articles»), but also an article «électron libre» (free electron), written by an invited author, an article «coup de projecteur» (in the spotlight) about the most recent conservation and restoration campaigns, as well as reports on artworks, a column «Actualités de la recherche» (Latest topics in research) and an event calendar.
