Academy of Fine Arts and Design – Type of Mobility: Staff mobility for Teaching – Academic year: 2016/2017
In the period between 1st and 15th of April, I have visited the Stroganov University in Moscow within the framework of the Erasmus+ educational programme.
At the Department of Restoration of Paintings, which is led by Prof. Muchitdin, I have presented our Institute for restoration in Bratislava in Russian language and I have screened a short documentary with Russian subtitles about a bachelor thesis of one of the students from Slovakia.
During the time I have spent in the studios of the University, I have had a chance to get to know the methods used at their Institute. Furthermore, I have learned about their technological procedures, which we then discussed and compared.
Throughout my stay, I have also visited many significant galleries in Moscow. The goal of my trip was to acquire professional contacts within the University itself. They have helped me make it possible to get into the restoration studios of Kremlin and Grabarja.
