The texts explore the themes of the exhibition, discussing the ideas of the Renaissance polymath Giordano Bruno and art historian Aby Warburg. This publication explores the interplay between perception and memory in our understanding of the world and on ideas, regarding materialized forms of memory and duration.
The book Ars Memoria contains reproductions of the artworks produced by Helene Nymann for the exhibition at Rundetaarn (a historical landmark and exhibition space in Copenhagen), as well as contributions from artist Joachim Koester, curator Iben Bach Elmstrøm, poet Mette Moestrup, neuroscientist Lauren Silbert, and psychologist Diana Ø. Tørsløv Møller.
