DYNAMIS OF THE IMAGE
FOR AN ARCHAEOLOGY OF POTENTIALITIES

DYNAMIS DE L’IMAGE
POUR UNE ARCHEOLOGIE DES POSSIBLES

The project Dynamis of the image aims at exploring the power of images in the contemporary globalized world by focusing not on the image’s referential functions, but on its performative forces. By asking by what means images generate affects, produce events or sometimes even provoke wars, the project critically reflects on the traditionally dominant Western paradigm of image thinking which has customarily reduced images to mere signifiers or inanimate objects. On the other hand, the project points toward a more encompassing perspective on images by including non-Western, premodern oder anthropological frameworks where the image has been reflected upon not in terms of its ontology, but in terms of its efficacy.

After a first conference held in Düsseldorf in June 2014 which dealt with the period from Antiquity to Early Renaissance, this second conference in Basel will pursue the historic archaeology up until today. A third conference will open to non-Western approaches on June 4-5 2015 in Paris.
