Seminar of Philosophy of Image

The Seminar of Philosophy of Image is a research group which aims at investigating contemporary issues in aesthetics and visual culture. The Serminar organises meetings with international speakers open to all public. Each gathering consists of a talk and a session of Q&A.

The Seminar has a transdisciplinary approach, but retains firm roots in philosophical disciplines. Therefore, we host contributions by scholars coming from, but not limited to anthropology, history of art, media studies, philosophy, psychology, and visual culture studies.

Scientific Coordinator: Prof. Andrea Pinotti
Organizing Committee: Federica Cavaletti, Pietro Conte, Anna Caterina Dalmasso, Giancarlo Grossi, Giacomo Mercuriali.


From 2019 to 2024, the Seminar of Philosophy of Image is integrated into the activities of the ERC Advanced Grant AN-ICON. An-Iconology: History, Theory, and Practices of Environmental Images coordinated by prof. Andrea Pinotti.
