Jana Access to the widest possible range of information is the first precondition for the development of all specialised disciplines. Present-day heritage care and all the fields that shape it not only must reflect the national experience, but they must also be aware of the fact that they are part of the wider international context. Nevertheless, access to international sources can often be limited for various reasons. The National Heritage Institute decided to at least partially eliminate this obstacle through the newly established VERBA DOCENT series to make available significant foreign sources. The first modest undertaking is the presentation of three texts by German preservationists, covering about thirty years of the monument preservation discourse. The texts date from the late 20th and early 21st centuries, i.e. the time when at least from the end of the 1970s a need for the repeated return to the crucial issues of care for tangible cultural heritage decidedly emerged along with the questioning of approaches that had long been regarded as fixed and unchangeable. The featured works include Manfred F. Fischer’s reflection essay ‘How Long the Artworks Last?’, Christoph Hellbrügge’s article ‘Yes to Conservation, No to Restoration” – The Heritage Care Myth?’, and Clemens Kieser’s text ‘Secret Aesthetics of Heritage Care: Discovered and Invented Cultural Monuments’. The texts are introduced in German originals along with their Czech translations and accompanied by brief comments and portraits of the authors.
