​​Manon D'haenens

I am an art conservator, specialized in contemporary art.

During my freelance work experience, I took an interest in the conservation management of the contemporary art collections and I continue now with a Ph.D. research at University of Liège on the conservator’s role within contemporary art collections.
At the same time, I am a professional freelance in contemporary art conservation, and lecturer at Ecole Supérieure des Arts Saint-Luc de Liège in the conservation department. Co-founder of SHAKE in Conservation, I am also member of INCCA-f, INCCA, IIC and ICOM-CC networks.
