The newly established picture studies deal with the question of the iconic difference between tableau and image. They examine whether and how language and picture, or textuality and visuality are inseparably connected with each other and concern the people in a prinicipal way. For, then, the knowledge of the pictures themselves will play a role which are not only regarded as mere aesthetic objects any longer which help visualizing the academic practices. By this perspective the fundamental secondarity of the pictures to academic knowledge is overcome, moreover, the essential knowledge of the pictures themselves is problematized.
