This colourfully illustrated book gives a broad introduction to the life and work of Asger Jorn, one of the most significant Scandinavian artists. Educated in Paris, he collaborated with Fernand Leger and Le Corbusier, as well as creating a vast oeuvre of paintings, prints, tapestries, ceramics, collages and sculpture, characterised by his constant need to challenge his work and methods. He was a founding member of various international art movements, providing theory and narrative on an exquisite collection of European avant-garde art. This new book presents a selection of Jorn's key works and also features many original documents, such as interviews, letters and photographs, as well as articles by and about Jorn. Arranged in chapters focusing on crucial moments of his life and works of particular significance throughout his career, it illustrates the diverse range of his artistic and literary achievements, and reveals his highly ironic and prosaic approach to art, politics and philosophy.
