Greenland has always fascinated man. Whether it was the indigenous people living of the land or the weary traveller who had reached this desolate and vast island. Asger Jorn has selected more than 250 works of art to give a comprehensive and inspiring view into the art of Greenland through a thousand years. Rather than labelling the artifacts by time they are presented to give a complete and artistic understanding of the relationship between the catcher, the nature and the prey.
