Aby Warburg: Bilderatlas Mnemosyne – The Original

In the 1920s, Aby Warburg (1866–1929), the scholar of art and culture, created his Bilderatlas Mnemosyne tracing recurring visual themes, gestures and patterns across time, from antiquity to the Renaissance and beyond to contemporary culture. At HKW all 63 panels of the Atlas will be reconstituted for the first time from Warburg’s original, partly multi-colored images.
