Conference celebrating the life, work and impact of Aby Warburg including a screening of Aby Warburg: Metamorphosis and Memory (60 minutes. 2016), a film by Judith Wechsler.
On 13-15 June 2016, the Warburg Institute celebrates the 150th anniversary of the birth of Aby Warburg. At the centre of this commemoration is a conference dedicated to his work and heritage. It will reclaim the centrality of Warburg’s thought and vision not only for the London Institute but for the world of international scholarship. A large group of distinguished scholars will discuss the implications of his thought for the history of art, images and cultures. The aim will be not only to illuminate the past, but to reveal the potential of his writings for the debate about contemporary cultural differences as well.
NB: Registration for Sessions 4 & 5 (15th June) has closed, but places are still available for Sessions 1-3 (13th and 14th June). For any queries please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
