Summary
The Art of Asger Jorn' is the first major work about one of Denmark's most important painters, Asger Jorn (1914-1973). It is not a typical biography depicting the outline of his life. Rather, the book sheds light on Jorn's artistic production: Who he was inspired by, which artistic movements he was in contact with, and - not least - what his paintings depict. This is also the focus of 'The Art of Asger Jorn' in which Lars Morell, a Danish historian of ideas, analyzes Jorn's paintings. The author concludes that Jorn's paintings do not depict anything specific. Indeed, it is as if Jorn seized them in the midst of transformation, where the subject is turning into a new subject. Morell finds that the paradoxes and transformations characteristic of the works were influenced by the ever-changing nature of Jorn?s own life
