Georges Didi-Huberman is a philosopher and art historian. He is a lecturer at École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris, where he explores the links between images, words and politics. After his early work on photography and hysteria, Didi-Huberman has gone on to publish more than thirty books about history and the theory of the image, exploring examples that range from the Renaissance to Contemporary Art.

SON[I]A talks to Didi-Huberman about the problems regarding the way in which we see and interpret images, a problematic issue that stems from the definition of what an image is, and from the hierarchy that has historically been imposed on the dialectic between words and images.
