Description
This week on the show we chat with an art conservator who has been pivotal in formalizing the field of time-based media conservation over the past two decades: Christine Frohnert. When Christine immigrated to the US in 2005 she was the only conservator who had training in  time-based media conservation – and she got to work quickly! Through her private practice with partner Reinhard Bek, her leadership in the American Institute for Conservation’s Electronic Media Group, and her work as a passionate educator, Christine has made a lasting impact on the field of time-based media conservation. Tune in to this week’s show to hear her story!
