Organised by the international research group “Bilderfahrzeuge. Aby Warburg’s Legacy and the Future of Iconology”.

By developing the term “Iconology”, Aby Warburg sought to distinguish his own methodology from the pervading art historical practices of his time, generating a nucleation point for new approaches in art history at the beginning of the 20th century. This reading group will study texts and authors that have similarly expanded the field of art history and visual studies over the last 20 years. Texts are circulated to registered participants two weeks in advance of each meeting.

The group is open to anyone interested. Registration by email to is essential.

Details of the 2021-2022 programme are to be confirmed.
