“Hilma af Klint: Artist, Researcher, Medium”

Moderna Museet | Malmö
Ola Billgren place 2-4
April 4–September 6, 2020

Curated by Iris Müller-Westermann and Milena Høgsberg

That she, a mystic—and a woman, no less—would one day draw record-breaking crowds to stand before her divine abstractions likely would not have surprised Hilma af Klint (1862–1944). “Non-Objectivity will be the religion of the future,” she once declared. Painting, for her, was more than a matter of aesthetics; it was a higher calling. Curators Iris Müller-Westermann and Milena Høgsberg will be the next to tackle af Klint’s prodigious output, filling the whole of the Moderna Museet Malmö with 230 of her works. Those who take the time to pore over the ten volumes of her blue notebooks—exhibited together for the first time here—will find in their pages the keys to even more of the profoundities she received.
