    Description

    Philosopher and art historian Georges Didi-Huberman is one of the most innovative and influential critical thinkers writing today. This book is the first English-language study of his writing on images. An image is a form of representation, but what are the philosophical frameworks supporting it? The book considers how Didi-Huberman takes up this question repeatedly over the course of his career. Placing his project in relation to major historical and intellectual contexts, it shows not only how he modifies dominant disciplinary traditions, but also how the study of images is central to a new way of thinking about poststructuralist-inspired art history.

    Reviews

    'Larsson's book is a wonderful entrée into the complexities of [Didi-Huberman's] discourse, and its legibility is a testament to the author, who has ordered and presented Didi-Huberman's often dazzling agenda for art history today.'
    Giles Fielke, Australian and New Zealand Journal of Art

    'Given the fact that Didi-Huberman has written over fifty books in a career spanning four decades and that he is one of the most well-known French theorists of images, such a study is long overdue... scholars studying his work now have a well-researched and very helpful monograph to help them find their way through the labyrinthine oeuvre of Didi-Huberman.'
    Stijn De Cauwer, CAA Reviews
