Danish artist and author Asger Jorn, along with Guy Debord, played a pivotal role in the early development of the revolutionary movement Situationist International. Jorn began his artistic career as a painter in Paris, and he became radicalized after joining the communist resistance movement during the Second World War. He played an integral part in launching a number of movements that combined the tenets of Marxism with artistic expression, including COBRA, the International Movement for an Imaginist Bauhaus, and later, after leaving Debord’s group, a breakaway Scandinavian movement called Second Situationist International. Jorn was incredibly prolific as an artist across all mediums, creating painting, sculpture, ceramics, and collage. In 1964 he was awarded, but turned down, the Guggenheim Award.
