Abstract

In the space of a generation, the omnipresent image has become the main medium through which we relate to the world, shaping not only our modes of expression but also our experiences. This transformation, which has brought about a profound renewal of our practices, is accompanied by a no less significant change in our relationship to time - and its narrowing focus on current events - but also to memory, by making it possible, through images, to instantly disseminate singular experiences in the public sphere. Starting from the untransmissible nature of individual experiences, particularly traumatic ones, Koselleck offers us here the starting point for a reflection on these contemporary mutations, particularly the question of transmission, but also of access to a common memory, which leads us to rethink the very presuppositions of historical work.
