On the anthropology of image – Marcin Pastwa

The lecture will be an attempt to explain the interdisciplinary concept of image in a project. Its methodological contours have been sketched by Hans Belting who placed his project in the dialogue between the history of art and other sciences related to the image. Anthropological foundation of image analysed in both historical and archaeological perspective understood as a result of the functioning of new media in contemporary art is related to the reflection defined in four categories: medium, image, body and place. These categories seem to describe human in his media existence and define the proper “place of images”.
