Georges Didi-Huberman represents one of the most important historiographic efforts to bring philosophical reflection back into art history. The author of Quand les images prennent position (2008) and the curator of the exhibition Atlas. How to carry the world on one's back?, he introduces the implications of narrating history based upon the "survival" of images and how the inequality of times –anachronism – is integrated into the exhibition of art, using analysis of and references to the ideas of Aby Warburg.
