KBWLa bibliothèque Warburg, laboratoire de pensée intermédiale

Philippe Despoix - KBW
The challenges of the library and the photographic collection founded by Aby Warburg in the 1920s, as a "laboratory" for collective research on the forms of transmission of images since Antiquity, and an intermedial device of knowledge. An exceptional case study, driven by the question: what was the impact of photography in Warburg's turning point in the history of art and culture?
Philippe Despoix is Professor of Comparative Literature at the University of Montreal where he directs "The Warburg Library Network" project.
