Prompted by the absence of folk art in Witte de With’s exhibition history, Decorations by Kasper Bosmans also features documents taken from artist Asger Jorn’s photographic archive 10,000 Years of Nordic Folk Art, a project part of his Scandinavian Institute for Comparative Vandalism, founded in 1961 as an interdisciplinary institute aimed at ‘vandalizing’ art history.

To further explore the presence of Asger Jorn in this exhibition, Hilde de Bruijn (Senior Curator, Cobra Museum of Modern Art, Amstelveen) talks about her research on Jorn's work and writing, with particular focus on his relation to folk art and vandalism.

Prior to this exhibition reading, you can join the reading of In the Belly of the Whale by artist Nicoline van Harskamp on the second floor at 6 pm.
