Over the last ten years, Astrup Fearnley Museet has initiated a number of exhibitions that map different art scenes in different countries. These shows, which include 'Uncertain States of America', 'China Power Station', 'Indian Highway' and 'Imagine Brazil', look at artistic languages, but also take into account the social and cultural context, the role of institutions, the critical discourses and the commercial art system in the countries in question. Now the museum turns its focus to Europe, with the exhibition 'Europe, Europe'.

In the third part of our exhibition series where the Astrup Fearnley Museum presents some of the collection’s most central artists, we have the pleasure of presenting Jens Johannessen (b. 1934).
In conjunction with the two-part exhibition series 'Biography' presented at Astrup Fearnley Museet in Oslo and the National Gallery of Denmark in Copenhagen, two books, a reader and a picture book, are published to celebrate the artists’ almost twenty years of art-making. The picture book is published by Hatje Cantz Verlag, and the reader is published by Archive Books, Berlin.
