The 2-day international symposium will take place in presence and intends to present several contributions that would deepen the understanding of different subjects involving plastic-based artistic objects.

This event will bring together for the first time national and international professionals from different disciplines, such as the artists and scientists from conservation laboratories who work with modern-contemporary art to focus on the challenges related to art in the Age of Plastics, guided by a focus on the POeMETRIE series of Dieter Roth. We will examine and discuss the issues these works face, their relevance to plastic heritage in general, and how they reflect the evolution of the development of plastics.
