Aby Warburg's Bilderatlas Mnemosyne in Berlin, Germany

Warburg’s original working materials for his legendary Bilderatlas Mnemosyne have returned to Germany in two very special exhibitions. For the first time since 1929, all 63 panels of the Bilderatlas have been reconstructed using Warburg’s original materials for display at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, whilst at the Gemäldegalerie you can view some 50 original artworks in the collections of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin chosen by Warburg for inclusion in his encyclopedic atlas of images.
