DIE GALERIE - Frankfurt a.M.


Retrospective 1937 - 1972
Opening Sep 05, 2013 at 11:00 am
Start date Sep 05, 2013
End date Nov 09, 2013

The Danish painter and art theorizer Asger Jorn (1914-1973) is considered one of the key figures of Avant-Garde of post-war Europe. The retrospective exhibition at DIE GALERIE units approximately 50 objects, paintings, works on paper, sculptures and ceramics, thus illustrating all important creative periods from 1937 to 1972 in the life of the Danish artist. Due to its range of important periods and selection of different kind of artwork the retrospective solo show of Asger Jorn at DIE GALERIE is the by far the most outstanding of its kind. His early work of the 1930s still displays the influence of Fernand Léger, Yves Tanguy, Paul Klee, Joan Miró and Max Ernst. His concepts of an art contrary to all norms and conventions made him a leading pioneer among the new generation of artists. Asger Jorn was a decisive influence on the art and appearance of the artist group CoBrA, which he founded in 1948 together with Karel Appel, Constant, Corneille, Christian Dotremont and Joseph Noiret. Jorn's influence, as well as his questioning of artistic originality and his demand for the elimination of borders between high and low art, has left its mark on everything from Art Informel and Abstract Expressionism through Post-Modern Art.
