The Warburg Institute Summer School

The inaugural Warburg Institute Summer School is dedicated to the work of Aby Warburg and his picture atlas Mnemosyne. Over the course of five days (8 - 12 July 2019) participants will first be introduced to exemplary panels from the Atlas; they will examine original material, familiarise themselves with the collections of The Warburg Institute and discuss relevant texts by Warburg and other scholars that unlock this inspirational and complex body of work. This course will focus particularly on material and popular culture, on art and science and on intercultural relations. It includes site visits (e.g. Victoria and Albert Museum, Wellcome Collection, Wallace Collection) to work through the different ways in which we can examine artworks and artefacts.
