about

“Pneumatology” is an essay on the representation of the most present yet invisible instance of life, namely wind, breath and air. On the one hand, the book maps out anthropological, art historical and philosophical conceptions of these three dimensions that are concentrated in the notion of pneuma. On the other hand, the book is an experiment in iconology because it asks one fundamental question: how do these invisible motifs challenge the traditional conception of the image as something seen and read? “Pneumatology” attempts to answer this question by addressing the structural relations that have determined the representation of these motifs across different cultures.
Vlad Ionescu is postdoctoral fellow in architectural theory at the Faculty of Architecture and Arts (Hasselt University). He previously studied philosophy of art at the University of Leuven where he defended his thesis on modern art historiography.
