Most heritage conservators recognise that their practice is not neutral to differing ideologies in society. In this poster, I explore why conservation decisions vary in different social contexts by applying a value-based model system to a case study of the drastic changes made to a Prussian Palace in Communist- and Post-Communist Poland. This illustrates some contextual issues that affected decision-making in this specific case, and may assist conservators in analysing how cultural circumstances shape priorities in the care of cultural heritage.
