Omtale Hilma af Klint (Swedish edition)
Fran att tidigare ha betraktats som en konstnarernas konstnar har Hilma af Klint (1862 - 1944), efter den foersta retrospektiva utstallningen pa Moderna Museet i Stockholm 2013 och den foeljande utstallningsturnen som sags av en miljonpublik, numera en etablerad plats i den abstrakta konstens historia. Centralt i hennes maleri ar aven fragan om andlighet. Hilma af Klint var en klassiskt skolad konstnar och ett medium som foervandlade andliga meddelanden till abstrakta och fargrika bilder. Ur en rad perspektiv undersoeks i den har katalogen hur denna banbrytande abstrakta konstnar kopplade sin konstnarliga praktik till ett hoegre medvetande. I essaer av konsthistoriker, en kvantfysiker, en larare i andlighet, en historiker i teosofi och esoterism, men flera, ges insikter om en varld bortom det synliga som fascinerar, nu kanske mer an nagonsin.

Katalogen har producerats i samband med utstallningen med samma namn pa Moderna Museet i Malmoe, sommaren 2020.


Once considered an outsider artist, after her show at the Guggenheim Museum was seen by more than half-a-mil-lion visitors, Hilma af Klint firmly established her place in art history. She has also been the subject of documenta-ry films and biographies. In 2013, Iris Muller-Westermann organized the first institutional exhibition of af Klint's work. Now she presents us with the latest information and research in an extensive survey show at the Moder-na Museet in Malmoe. Of crucial importance is the issue of spirituality in af Klint's painting-how she managed to translate both the material and the immaterial world into a pictorial vision. The accompanying exhibition catalogue is the first to investigate, from a variety of perspectives, the question of how this trailblazing abstract artist linked her painting to a higher consciousness. Essays by leading historians of theosophy and a quantum physicist, among others, provide enlightening insight into a world in which both the visualization of atoms and spiritual seances alike became artistic material-a world that fascinates us even more than ever.
