Paintworks presents the works of Danish artists Jonas Georg Christensen and Peter Olsen, a kind of congenial everyday low-key graffiti. It is so discreet and minimalist that it completely blends into the building and only the attentive sees it.
Paintworks gives the same pale image of buildings in Denmark as everyday life is for most of us. We pass them, but our thoughts are somewhere else. But when we take a closer look: isn’t something strange, something that is skewed?
From a Scandinavian perspective, Paintworks is a kind of minimalist bombing. Graffiti’s equivalent to Scandinavian fashion, industrial design and architecture.
Paintworks contains a longer theoretical text by Carsten Madsen, associate professor at Aarhus University, as well as an introduction by Claus Peder Pedersen, who heads the research school at the School of Architecture in Aarhus.
The book is a joint edition between Dokument Press and the Danish publishing company Forlaget Emancipa(t/ss)ionsfrugten and the publishing platform txt (Txt Publishing).
