Application and adaptation of Japanese materials, tools, and techniques in Argentina, Colombia, and Paraguay
Palabras clave:materials, tools, suppliers, adaptation, application, restoration, Japanese techniques
Argentina, Colombia, and Paraguay have particular realities and conditions that extend to their institutions in charge of safeguarding cultural heritage. When returning to our institutions after participating in the International Course on Paper Conservation in Latin America: Meeting the East, in its 2016 and 2019 editions, respectively, we applied the knowledge and techniques learned—starting with the training of our work teams, the adjustment of the spaces (workshops and laboratories), the purchase of specific materials and supplies, among others. Below we will present some results we have obtained with applying this knowledge and experiences with traditional Japanese and Latin American restoration techniques and how to approach the work from the criteria and ethics of the discipline of restoration.
