Reflexionen / Reflections
Für / to Manfred Koller

Manfred Koller retired after 3 decades of service as chair of IIC Austria. The board of trustees, headed by the new chair Gabriela Krist, therefore decided to dedicate this issue of Restauratorenblätter to him. After discussion, Manfred Koller presented us with a list – “Koller’s List”: a list of wishes or letter to Father Christmas, which transformed itself into this issue and should be regarded as a gift to Manfred Koller. The list consisted of names of valued colleagues predominantly from abroad, which were supposed to provide authorships. Topics should be various: a professional overview, a former research question probably solved meanwhile or simply a shared professional passion. Articles demonstrate Manfred Koller’s input to further research and new initiatives in the world of conservation. There is also a remarkable insight into Manfred Koller’s life, provided by a personal interview, held to celebrate this issue.
