SPECIAL EVENT| Quantifying the loss of cultural heritageNovember 2015
PRESENTED BY VIVIEN ANDERSON GALLERY @ BRIGHTSPACE, ST KILDA
HOW DO WE MEASURE THE DESTRUCTION OF CULTURE HERITAGE?
SATURDAY 21 NOVEMBER AT 2PM
Quantifying the loss of cultural heritage in the Middle East by ISIL
By Art Historian Dr Antonio Gonzalez, Associate Research Fellow, Deakin University
“Many of you saw the Hollywood movie "Monuments Men" that documented the activities of The Allies in WWII to retrieve and protect art historical treasures from the looting of the Nazis. Once again, the global community has been put on notice in relation to the devastating iconoclastic activities of religious fundamentalists in the Middle East.
Antonio has recently been appointed to a major research project at Deakin University funded by the Australian Department of Defence. The project is investigating the damage being done by the terrorist organisation ISIL at the historic site of Palmyra, Syria.
Antonio González was born in Mexico and moved to Australia to pursue postgraduate studies at The University of Melbourne, where he wrote a dissertation on the destruction of Indigenous rock art in Western Australia, due to be published by Archaeopress (Oxford) next year. As an expert on heritage destruction, he has written articles for The Conversation and his work has been published in the Cambridge Archaeological Journal. In 2015 he was a Visiting Scholar in the Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage at the University of Birmingham. He is currently an Associate Research Fellow in the Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation at Deakin University (Australia), working on a project that seeks to measure the destruction of cultural property in Iraq and Syria.
