Follower of Reza-i ‘Abbasi: A Wandering Youth, Isfahan, ca.1620

A workshop organised by the international research project “Bilderfahrzeuge. Aby Warburg’s Legacy and the Future of Iconology”.

17th– 18th June 2019

The Warburg Institute, Woburn Square, London WC1H 0AB

By addressing images and vessels with regard to their qualities as carriers and containers, this workshop sets out to think past conventional oppositions of visuality and materiality. Through a series of conversations based on readings and case studies, it seeks to open up new transdisciplinary and transcultural perspectives for interrogating the very notions of ‘image’, ‘thing’ and ‘object’ in space, time, cultures and media. 

The full programme is available to view and download as a PDF here.
