Congratulations #13: U. Pfisterer and H.-C. Hönes (eds), 2015, Aby Warburg – Fragmente zur Ausdruckskunde [Fragments on the Theory of Expression], Berlin: Walter de Gruyter

Congratulations to Hans-Christian on the publication of Aby Warburg – Fragmente zur Ausdruckskunde [Fragments on the Theory of Expression]. This edition of Aby Warburg’s early theoretical manuscripts – among others the much discussed texts “Fragmente zur Ausdruckskunde” and “Symbolismus als Umfangsbestimmung” – provides a dense, highly biographic documentation of his unique way of thinking. The notes, schematic drawings, and diagrams of this young scholar offer unique insight into his working methods. The volume includes key documents from the early phase of Warburg’s thinking and research on his theory of images and symbols between approx. 1888 and 1905. This genetical critical edition makes the different phases of Warburg’s reworking of his texts intelligible for the first time. The introductory essay opens up a highly original new perspective on these processes of notation and (biographical) self-documentation.”
