Published by Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.
Edited by Jacob Wamberg, Michael Juul Holm, Poul Erik Tøjner. Text by Helle Brøns.

The second publication in the Louisiana Library series, from Denmark's Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, is an in-depth look at that institution's impressive Asger Jorn collection. Jorn, a founding member of COBRA (an acronym for Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam), remains one of Denmark's most influential painters. He was also a founding member, with Guy Debord, of the Situationist International (SI). There has been a tendency to view Debord as the sole motivating figure behind the SI, but while Debord's role was indisputably central, Jorn's influence should not be underestimated. In his four years of activity with the group (1957-1961), Jorn not only continued to make some of his best paintings, he also assisted in the editing of the movement's journal, Internationale Situationniste. This volume provides an introduction to the life and work of this key figure of the European postwar art scene and is illustrated with color reproductions of the museum's entire Jorn collection.
