Exhibition: Open Creation and its Enemies: Asger Jorn in SituationExhibition - Painting
This exhibition, at the Institut Valencià dárt Modern, showcases some of the most outstanding works of the Danish painter Asger Jorn. A founding member of avant-garde movements such as Cobra and the Situationist International, Jorn transformed the world by producing, collecting and reworking images. Originality and the avant-garde in its purest form.
In the middle of the 20th century, during a stay in Sweden, he drew several members of the indigenous Sámi people. Over the years, he made several copies of that original drawing and invited various artist friends to experiment by doing the same. The result? A proliferation of interpretations and experiments, open to interpretation by the spectator.At the IVAM you can learn about many of Asger Jorn's experiments. As well as works commissioned by Danish artist Anna Sofie Mathiasen and the Scandinavian Institute for Comparative Vandalism, you will be able to consult a comprehensive book featuring translations of canonical and hitherto unpublished texts by Jorn.
