July 17, 2013 katharina4

Katharina Haider, kindly hosted us in her studio near Moritzplatz. She is the art conservator behind Bacon Studios and specialises in plastics conservation and restoration, contemporary art conservation and modern materials on a consultancy basis.

During our visit, she showed us the new pieces that she is working on, shared tales of couriering an Andy Warhol from Milan to New York, discussed different options of packing material and had even baked cakes in preparation, brilliant!
