Contents: Preface and article about the collection in Silkeborg by Jacob Thage Article about each of the 100 artists with short reviews and photos of the artist's essential works from the collection, presented in alphabetical order.

The show intends partly to take part in globalisation and partly to limit the focus to visual arts and the plethora it represents. The exhibition accomplishes this by presenting six selected artists, all Korean residents, and thus in a Danish perspective providing the Danish audience with an opportunity of experiencing how a group of contemporary Korean visual artists work. The artists utilize an international form language in installations, conceptual art, and videos while at the same time researching into developing and refining these expressions.

Joyously chromatic and brimming with reckless vitality, the paintings, drawings and collages of Danish artist Tal R (born 1967) are anything but academic--hence the ironic title of this overview, which surveys works from the past 20 years of his vast output as well as a series of new works. Tal R has been a storyteller from the outset of his career in the 1990s, always hovering between figuration and abstraction with a special eye for the overlooked, hidden and repressed spaces of modern life. "I do painting a bit like people make a lunch box," he once declared. "I constantly have this hot-pot boiling and I throw all kinds of material into it." While the artist is well known as a prolific publisher of artist's books (usually gathering specific bodies of work), Academy of Tal R is the most substantial overview of his diverse ouevre yet published.
