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.

Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) was a progressive and spiritualist painter and a pioneer among women artists. She regarded herself to to be a disciple of “High Masters” from another dimension, and she expressed in her painting what she understood as her dialogue with the movements of Theosophy and Rosicrucianism. She was also a student of Rudolph Steiner’s teachings. Her work ranges from the colorful, geometrical style of early modernism, to excellent portraits, to an abstracted fantasy world reminiscent of Klimt. This short monograph contains a biographical essay presenting her ideas, her reasoning and her ambitions in a most intriguing and concise manner.

Per Nilsson was born in Gävle in 1963. During his childhood he moved often and lived from Kiruna in the north to Kristianstad in the south. In 2001 he received his PhD in Philosophy at Umeå University with the thesis “Nature Science and Reason: Dialectic of Enlightenment, and the other modern.” Since 2001 he has worked as a philosopher at the Academy of Fine Arts in Umeå. In his new book, The Amphibian Stand: A Philosophical Essay Concerning Research Processes in Fine Art . Nilsson develops a philosophy of art and relates it to the debate on art and research. He argues that art's critical potential and its dialectical deconstructive approach to including language, norms and philosophy render it suitable as a research discipline. The core of the book is the discourse theory developed by Per's metaphors Ampibian and Littoral landscape of culture, metaphors that point out that our cultures are the illusory positions of dogmatism and relativism. It is in the littoral landscape that the amphibians presented live their lives, well-adapted to their environment.
