The memory atlas

Director: Domenico Centrone

Between 1922 and 1924, the art historian Aby Warburg spent more than two years in the Bellevue Psychiatric Asylum in Kreuzlingen, Switzerland.
In 2018 a filmmaker finds the real diaries and medical reports of that experience. Through a surrealistic journey in Warburg’s mind, The memory atlas questions the limits between madness and greatness in the process of creation.

This film is part of a combined programme with: Naturales historiae. They are part of a special Science themed night in cinema 4 on Saturday, with a diverse set of films relating to science, nature and philosophy all evening.
