The monograph JOHN KØRNER is the most comprehensive publication on Danish artist John Kørner (b. 1967) to date. John Kørner is of great importance to the Danish art scene, and in addition to several exhibitions on Danish soil, Kørner, right now, has his international break through with major solo exhibitions in Finland and Belgium. In the monograph, Kørner is highlighted as a multi-artist, for whom painting remains the pictorial form in which he has unreserved confidence.

In conversation with Marie Nipper, Kørner talks about the topics that have engaged him in recent years and about his desire to express himself in spatial installations that go beyond the limits traditionally defined by the canvas. In two essays, curator Max Andrews and art critic Oliver Basciano reflect on Kørner’s year-long work with the ‘problem’ as a recurrent figure. For better or for worse, problems are part of life in this world. Problems are essential, for humans as well as for art.
