“Bilderwanderung” and “Sprachmetamorphose”: Research on the translation and transformation of Aby Warburg’s (1866–1929) language
Research report (imported) 2013 - Bibliotheca Hertziana – Max Planck Institut for Art History
The German Warburg-Kreis art historians’ language had been transformed due to their forced exile in English-speaking countries. How has the study of visual arts been influenced by languages rooted in different cultural traditions? Research focuses on the way Aby Warburg’s approach altered in the works of his first intellectual heirs.
