Hilma af Klint : Artist, Researcher, Medium
Following her show at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, which was seen by more than half a million visitors, Hilma af Klint has firmly established her place in art history. Once considered an outsider artist, she has also been the subject of documentary films and biographies and in this beautiful publication Iris Müller-Westermann presents the latest information and research on this incredible artist.
Published to coincide with an extensive survey show at the Moder-na Museet in Malmö, Hilma af Klint investigates the artists’ spirituality, from a variety of perspectives and 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 séances alike became artistic material-a world that fascinates us even more than ever.
