Short doc fiction - Belgium/Italy, 10min, HD, Color, 2019

Synopsis

The Memory Atlas is a surrealistic journey through Aby Warbug's mind, the man who revolutionised the theory of the 20th century's art history. 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 the medical reports of that experience. Trough a surrealistic journey in Warburg’s mind, The Memory Atlas questions the limits between madness and greatness in the process of creation.
