WJT Mitchell: Iconology Today (Episode 6)
Literary critic and theorist of visual culture WJT Mitchell talks to us about his classic book Iconology, as well the fear of images, John Locke, digital media, ideology, the life of images, images as life, and more.
For more on visual culture today, consider checking by the "Now! Visual Culture" conference being held at NYU in late May, where WJT Mitchell, myself, and a variety of scholars and artists will be giving talks. More info here.
