Moving Walls | Opening Doors

25 May 2016 - 10.00 am - 6.00 pm

 

The Warburg Institute is hosting an exciting open house event on 25 May 2016 10 am - 6 pm. Called ‘Moving Walls | Opening Doors’ it captures the new dynamism and openness of the Warburg Institute under the Directorship of the newly appointed, internationally renowned scholar David Freedberg.

'Moving Walls | Opening Doors’ features engaging seminars by two colleagues who head our MA programmes: Dr Guido Giglioni, for the MA in Cultural and Intellectual History 1300 – 1650, and Dr Joanne Anderson, for the MA in Art History, Curatorship and Renaissance Culture, which is offered in conjunction with London’s National Gallery.

There will be tours of the famous library including an introduction to its unique classification and arrangement of human culture and expression, and tours of the Aby Warburg archive and photographic collection, which is increasingly of great interest to contemporary artists and scholars of art. There will be a showing of Judith Wechsler’s new film on the life of Aby Warburg, and an informational session on studying at the Warburg and the funding opportunities available. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

Attendance is free of charge. To register please visitBit.ly/21ey5L0

A detailed programme of the day will be added to this page by 20 May.
