In the 1990s and thereafter Annika von Hausswolff became established as one of the leading figures in Swedish and Scandinavian contemporary art. Many of her photographic works have already become classics. She is one of the Swedish artists who has received most notice internationally in recent years and she has represented Sweden at several major exhibitions including the Venice Biennial in 1999. She belongs to a generation of young, women artists who have used photographic images conceptually with a clear gender perspective and a critically analytical approach. The exhibition comprises almost 50 works and this makes it one of the larger shows of her work to be presented in recent years.

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.

ASGER JORN’S WRITINGS ON ART & ARCHITECTURE, 1938-1958. Fraternite Avant Tout

The Danish artist Asger Jorn (1914–1973) was active in the Høst, CoBrA and the Situationist International groups. The numerous leaflets, exhibition catalogues, interviews, articles and books he wrote throughout his career attest to his urge to provoke debate at all levels. Fraternité Avant Tout gathers Jorn’s writings on art and architecture, translated into English for the first time. Asger Jorn’s statement “In the beginning was the image” represents both the starting point for discussions with his contemporaries and also the key element in his overall philosophy. After more than half a century, his groundbreaking theory on image creation coupled with his Marxist political convictions are strikingly fresh and apposite. His arguments on the image and imagery, not only as a medium for artistic imagination and aesthetic articulation but also as a critical instrument for progress in human life, strike immediate resonances today when image based popular cultures and technologies exert an undeniable influence on our own society. Jorn’s writings also shed new light on the origin and development of the Situationist movement’s theory of architecture and urbanism. (This is especially pertinent in the context of recent scholarly work on the Situationist International, in which Jorn is often characterized as being only concerned with art matters.) This critical introduction to Jorn’s philosophy on the relationship between art and architecture sets a context for a contemporary audience to fully appreciate how his thought and writing evolved.

This is the first time that so many of Ataman’s works are exhibited together. Atman was born in Turkey and now lives in London. He concentrates on the question of identity, the construction of the subject. The “long streams”, from which this exhibition takes place, have manifested themselves from Ataman’s very first work in the genre of visual art, i.e., in his almost eight-hour-long film, in which the more than 90-year-old Turkish opera singer, Semiha Berksoy, recalls and re-enacts scenes from her life, which spans the whole of Turkey’s modern history.
