Research and conservation 'Mobile Home for Kröller-Müller'
The enormous artwork Mobile Home for Kröller-Müller by Joep van Lieshout was designed as a contemporary trailer home constructed with wood and glass fibre reinforced polyester resin. After 10 years of display it still looked fairly good from the outside but started to develop severe signs of decay on the inside.
Taking a sample from the polyester roof of Mobile Home voor Kröller-Müller by Elisa Schöne from the University of Amsterdam and Thea van Oosten from the Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage (ICN) to analyse the current state of degradation.
