This chapter investigates the ongoing influence Michel Foucault continues to exert on Didi-Huberman’s research, particularly Foucault’s arguments deployed in The Archaeology of Knowledge. This chapter argues that Didi-Huberman retrieves a neglected period of Foucault’s work and reinvigorates it, demonstrating the usefulness of archaeology as a mode of critique. The questions that dominate the first phase of Didi-Huberman’s research are direct responses to the historiographic questions an archaeological approach raises: how is the discipline of art history possible? If art history was ‘born’ in the Renaissance, what legacies continue to inform and direct our contemporary understanding and practice?
