Collection Management

Collections management involves the development, storage, and preservation of cultural property, as well as objects of world history (including archeological artworks, contemporary art, literature, technology, and documents) in museums, libraries, archives, and private collections. Cultural property collections require a great deal of care and protection in order to ensure their safety from external loss or damage, but they also require in-depth documentation to assist in tracking the life of the object within the holding institution. To accommodate these needs, collectors adhere to collections management and collections care standards and practices, which serve to create a safe environment for collection objects with clear and precise accompanying documentation. Where collections care addresses the physical actions necessary to prevent or delay damage to cultural heritage, collection management can be defined as "a process of information gathering, communication, coordination, policy formulation, evaluation, and planning. "These processes influence decisions about records management and the collections management policy, which outlines protocols for the collection scope, collections care, and emergency planning and response. 

During my journey as a collection manager and a conservator, I found opportunities to work on thousands of years old historical objects beside artworks of worldwide known artists such as Richard Serra, Ai Wei Wei, KAWS, Jeff Koons, Olafur Eliasson, Louise Bourgeois, Katharina Fritsch.
