Infinitely Fractured World

Among the most interesting experiments into how images are replicated, rearranged and transmitted through time and space, thus fracturing and conflating visual experiences, Atlas: How to Carry the World on One’s Back, curated by French art historian and philosopher Georges Didi-Huberman and first shown at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid in 2010, riffs on work done by German cultural theorist Aby Warburg a century ago for his Mnemosyne Atlas. Afteratlas, a new iteration of the project presented by the Beirut Art Centre, is an Atlas-based photographic essay by Austrian photographer Arno Gisinger in collaboration with Didi-Huberman that keeps the images coming.

Beirut Art Centre, Beirut, Lebanon, 23 January – 22 March 2014
