Asger Jorn's Writings on Art and Architecture, 1938-1958: Fraternit Avant Tout

Published by nai010 publishers
Edited by Ruth Baumeister.

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.
