Conservation Goes International
commitment to preserve the cultural heritage of this world, be it in Nepal, India, China, Myanmar, Thailand or Mongolia, is
the mission of the Institute of Conservation. In 2004 Gabriela Krist, her colleagues and students, launched the institute‘s
international activities in Nako, 4000m high in the Himalayas, starting a journey that continues to this day.
Borders is the first portrayal to account for not only the professional, but also the personal, human aspects of this mission.
The richly illustrated book accompanies the members of the team as they take a broader view, expanding their horizons. For
the institute’s international conservation work requires not only specialized expertise, but also creativity and flexibility.
