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.

A leading figure of the postward avant-garde, Danish artist Asger Jorn has long been recognzed for his founding contributions to the Cobra and Situationist International movements - yet art historical scholarship on Jorn has been sparse, particularly in English. This study corrects that imbalance, offering a synthetic account of the essential phases of this prolific artist’s career. it addresses his works in various media alongside his extensive writings and his collaborations with various artists’ groups from the 1940s through the mid-1960s. The author reframes our understanding of the 1950s away from the Abstract Expressionist focus on individual expression, toward a more open-ended conception of art as a public engagement with contemporary culture and politics. Extensively researched and profusely illustrated.
