Georges Didi-Huberman

Georges Didi-Huberman is a philosopher and art historian. He is one of the most influential authors in contemporary visual studies. Since 1990, he teaches at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris. His numerous monographs make use of inter- and transdisciplinary perspectives to explore a vast and heterogeneous iconographic field, spanning from the Renaissance to present day media.

His innovative approaches to philosophy, psychology and literary studies have expanded our understanding of arts and culture. His latest books, “Désirer, désobéir. Ce qui nous soulève, 1” (2019) and “Imaginer recommencer. Ce qui nous soulève, 2” (2021), are inquiries into the nature of political gestures and imagination, intersecting phenomenological and anthropological perspectives with philosophical reflections concerning time and history.
