Image / Vessel

A workshop by the International Research Group 'Bilderfahrzeuge' at the Warburg Institute, London organised by the Dipanwita Donde, Anita Hosseini, Sanja Savkic, Gerhard Wolf and Ning Yao

Follower of Reza-i ‘Abbasi, A Wandering Youth, Isfahan, ca. 1620

By addressing images and vessels with regard to their qualities as carriers and containers, this workshop sets out to think past conventional oppositions of visuality and materiality. through a series of conversations based on readings and case studies, it seeks to open up new transdisciplinary and trans cultural perspectives for interrogating the very notions of 'image', 'thing' and 'object' in space, time, cultures and media.


To register for the workshop, please email Stuart Moss at by 31 May 2019. Please note that places are limited.

Registered participants will receive the texts for the "Reading" section of the workshop by 5 June 2019.
