Aby Warburg: Volume of Works (Edition)

Aby Warburg, passionate image researcher and founder of iconology as an independent discipline, was quite the »grandseigneurale scholar«, according to his contemporary Walter Benjamin. Warburg transcended disciplinary boundaries and developed a special interest in figures of transition, inversion, and conversion, which he used as seismographs of their own eras. Today there is hardly any field of the humanities that has not been significantly influenced by him and hardly a cultural studies debate that does not speak to the legacy of ideas left behind by his writings.

Created by the ZfL, a volume of complete works collects Warburg’s most important texts in a carefully annotated edition, in which all foreign-language quotations have been translated for the first time. In addition to a selection of previously published work, which was revised in part based on the posthumous manuscripts, this edition also contains previously unpublished manuscripts from the estate.
