Aby Warburg: Bilderatlas Mnemosyne

Press release

Aby Warburg: Bilderatlas Mnemosyne – The Original

The exhibition is curated by Roberto Ohrt and Axel Heil in cooperation with the Warburg Institute, London.

In the 1920s, the historian of art and culture Aby Warburg (1866-1929) created his Bilderatlas Mnemosyne tracing recurring visual themes and patterns across time, from antiquity to the Renaissance and beyond to contemporary culture. His approach provides inspiration for today’s visually and digitally dominated world. At HKW all 63 panels of the Atlas will be recovered for the first time from Warburg’s original images.
