Created between 1925 and 1929, Aby Warburg’s Bilderatlas Mnemosyne is one of the most legendary artifacts of art history, constantly cited but until now seen only from reproductions of Warburg’s black-and-white photos. Now, in a historic achievement, Roberto Ohrt and Axel Heil have done what long seemed impossible, working with the staff of the Warburg Institute to search more than 400,000 images in the Institute’s Photo Collection, identifying Warburg’s original working materials from the Atlas and (for the first time) reconstructing the panels as they appeared at Warburg’s death in 1929. The reconstructed panels have formed the basis for both an exhibition and a facsimile edition, bringing the Atlas back to life and making it accessible as never before. Here Ohrt and Heil discuss their editorial labor, the Atlas and its influence, in conversation with Warburg Institute scholars Bill Sherman and Claudia Wedepohl.
