The Conceptual Image: Ellipsis

Organization: Dr. Pablo Schneider, Members: Franz Engel, Dr. des. Jan Konrad Schröder, Philipp Ruch

The emphasis of this research group lies on two interrelated topics: For one, re-issuing the works of the art historian and philosopher Edgar Wind, whose philosophy of pictures and embodiment is seminal for current debates; and furthermore, the examination of early modern conflicts initiated through pictures, with a special focus on the dynamics of decision-making initiated by pathos formulas. The research project “Picture and Decision. Models and Analysis of Picture-Activated Strategies” is associated with this research focus.

Cooperation: Dr. Martin Kauffmann, Bodleian-Library, Oxford (Edgar Wind Papers), Prof. Pascal Griener, Institut d’histoire de l’art, Université de Neuchâtel
