About: Juliane Wattig

I received my diploma from the Cologne Institute for Conservation Sciences (CICS), Germany. I specialize in treating 20th-century art and mixed-media objects and am interested in ways of making, preserving, storing, and presenting art, communicating with the public, and enhancing conservation knowledge through collaboration among colleagues in related professions including scientists, curators, designers, artists, and manufacturers. Currently, I am employed at the Getty Research Institute (GRI), where I preserve objects from the broad special collections, such as the Jean Brown Collection, the Architecture and Design Collection, and the Editions for PARKETT.
