Journée d'études

Genealogy and Morphology. Perspectives on the Origin and Becoming of Images

If genealogy deals with the problem of lineage, morphology has since Goethe’s work treated the becoming of forms, later also the becoming of images, genres, literary phenomena etc. Together genealogy and morphology provide the outlines for a type of question that asks from where things come, up to the philosophically rigorous inquiry into the question of origins, while also studying the phenomenon of transformation and its regularities. This event is organized within the framework of the international research group Bilderfahrzeuge: Warburg’s Legacy and the Future of Iconology, which sets out to explore the migration of images and ideas in a broad historical and geographical context.
