Images potentiellesAmbiguïté et indétermination en art moderne

Images potentielles Dario Gamboni - Images potentielles
Ambiguity is inherent in images because visual perception is an interpretative act involving memory and imagination. Modern art has made this aspect of perception crucial to its relationship with the viewer. Images potentielles (Potential Images), the first systematic exploration of this topic, considers those works of art that rely to a great degree on imaginative response.
Dario Gamboni (born 1954 in Yverdon, Switzerland) is Professor of Art History at the University of Geneva.
