About the exhibition

Asger Jorn – Restless Rebel


28 February - 15 June 2014


The SMK celebrated the 100th anniversary of the birth of Asger Jorn and gave the whole story about the world-famous Danish artist.

Asger Jorn – isn’t he that Cobra-painter with the big, colourful paintings? Yes, he is, but Jorn is also much more than that. 

This exhibition gave you a 360 degree view of a truly unique figure within Danish art: Jorn experimented with art throughout his life, was politically engaged, and created sculptures, paintings, ceramics, architecture and much more.
