“Things can only be diverse and should be diverse,” wrote Donald Judd in 1964 about the art scene in New York, and hence rejected a one-dimensional ordering of art history in favor of an open encounter with works of art.

Asmund Havsteen-Mikkelsen


Mentalscapes is the first international monograph to present the works of Danish painter Asmund Havsteen-Mikkelsen. For more than a decade, he has depicted modernist architecture. With an uncanny sense of its utopian properties as well as its monumental failures, he constructs both atmospherically dense, almost surreal and loosely dispersed spaces. With acute awareness of the historical models upon which the paintings are based, his Mentalscapes create a complex multidimensional version of the given reality.

An accompanying essay by Michael Diers will further elaborate on painting and cognitive faculty.
