As part of the series “European Year of Cultural Heritage”, the international conference ‘Heritage and identity’ was organised by the Association of Cultural Heritage Managers (KÖME) in collaboration with the Institute of Advanced Studies (iASK) and the local government of Kőszeg between 23-26 March 2018.
“Do not debase or destroy existing values through reconstruction! Authenticity is essential. Respective international standards define the lines and conditions of reconstruction.”
Cultural heritage is not restricted to borders; it unites cities, regions and countries to create a network of cultural identities.
On 6 April 2018, sculptor Endre András Tornay’s exhibiton entitled “Shades Hidden in Matter” will be opened by iASK in the Zwinger Old Tower in Kőszeg.
