The relationship between images and language remains a topical subject. Recently,
pictures have increasingly been understood as a medium of expression in its own right. Building on these discussions, this book also casts them into a critical light. It probes the question of whether images, precisely where they intersect with the verbal realm, open up new insights that cannot easily be put into words. And is it not the discussion of art, i.e., the representation of imagery through language, that produces momentous insights? Instead of looking at parallel processes or distinctions between images and language, this book focuses on the entanglement of and feedback mechanisms between the world of the visual and that of words.
