Collection: Asger Jorn

Asger Oluf Jørgensen, better known as Asger Jorn (Vejrum, Jutland, March 3, 1914-Aarhus, May 1, 1973) was a Danish artist.

Jorn fought for total freedom of art. He produced multiple works, painting, collage, writing, tapestries, sculpture, in the last years of his life, ceramics, and a valuable work on paper (engravings, lithographs, drawings, book illustrations). Jorn also puts his art at the service of a rebellion against the sacred. He published ''Green Language and Drunkenness'' in 1968, a pamphlet against structuralism.
