New Publication: “(Signification) Art History Before English”

This book addresses a phenomenon that pervades the field of art history and indeed scholarship in general: the fact that English has become academia’s most prominent and widely adopted language.

Aby Warburg: Bilderatlas Mnemosyne

Exhibition. In the 1920s, Aby Warburg created his so-called Bilderatlas Mnemosyne, tracing recurring visual themes and patterns across time, from antiquity to the Renaissance and beyond.

For the first time ever, all 63 panels of the Atlas have been recovered from Warburg’s original images and will be available to view in a special display at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) in Berlin.
