Resumen

A reflection on the role of images in the post-truth era and on the concept of image itself, which constitutes a central object of study in the field of communication sciences, is presented. The conceptual complexity –semiotic and symbolic– of the image is shown, which explains the diversity of approaches in studies on images. Then, several proposals are exposed for the study of images in the current context of disinformation. Finally, a brief reflection is developed on the need to analyse audiovisual texts in the society of spectacle and post-truth.
