In the framework of my research into Asger Jorn´s writing and thinking I organize public sessions with special guests. The guest´s practice, knowledge, insights, or responses are informative to my research, or steer the direction that I take on a particular topic. Oftentimes, the sessions also responded to the context of the hosting institution, or to a specific request. Making the sessions public is a way to share and dialogue with audiences. Below is an overview of the the sessions that took place so far. I also post more detailed reports.
