Aby Warburg Bilderatlas Mnemosyne Virtual Exhibition

We know that the COVID-19 virus prevented many people from travelling to Berlin to see the two landmark exhibitions: Aby Warburg: Bilderatlas Mnemosyne - the Original, at Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) curated by Roberto Ohrt and Axel Heil in collaboration with the Warburg Institute; and Between Cosmos and Pathos: Berlin Works from Aby Warburg's Mnemosyne Atlas at the Gemäldegalerie. Therefore, we are delighted to present to you a complete virtual tour of these two major exhibitions dedicated to Aby Warburg and his unfinished magnum opus, the Bilderatlas Mnemosyne.

Renaissance Art and Material Culture Short Course

28 June - 2 July 2021

Join us for our brand new 5-day online short course led by Rembrandt Duits (Deputy Curator of the Warburg Institute Photographic Collection).

Drawing on a range of approaches and a broad array of material culture in an examination of how various strata of Early Modern European society experienced and appreciated "art" the course will explore how such wider popular narratives fit alongside the more traditional art-historical perspectives of the great Renaissance painters, sculptor and architects.
