Warburg, the Sacred and its Critiques

We are pleased to announce that two of our Bilderfahrzeuge colleagues are presenting their research in Leipzig next week. Their presentations are part of a panel on Aby Warburg at the Forum for Italian Art (Forum Kunstgeschichte Italiens) on the 16 March 2023 at the University of Leipzig, organised by Prof. Frank Zöllner. Steffen Haug will give a paper on Warburg’s critique of Gabriele D’Annunzio’s war agitation in the First World War. The presentation is part of his book project on the war journals of the image historian 1914–1918. Eckart Marchand is taking a close look at Warburg’s interpretation of the Catholic religion during the Renaissance, notably in his studies on Francesco Sassetti. The panel also includes papers on Warburg’s “Fortuna” by Stephanie Heremans (Leuven University) and by Claudia Wedepohl (The Warburg Institute) on the figure of the Ninfa.
