Workshop "Invention of Writing: Production of Images and Language..." - 12-13-14-15/01/2021,(Online)
Writing may have arisen out of images, but not all images have become systems of writing. How did this invention take place? When does an image become a sign? This Workshop attempts to answer these questions, following the inventions of “iconic” writing systems around the world, from Egypt to Easter Island, from the valley of the Indus to central America, from Mesopotamia to the island of Crete, and to the core of Africa.
