Hilma af Klint
A Series of Seminars
Since 2013, the foundation has arranged a series of seminars on the ideas, art and history of religion that were part of the Zeitgeist around the turn of the 20th century and that influenced the early modernist artists as well as the prophetic artist Hilma af Klint (1862–1944).
The foundation has arranged a number of seminars in conjunction with the exhibition Hilma af Klint – Pioneer of Abstraction. The seminars were held at Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Engelsberg Ironworks in central Sweden, Hamburger Bahnhof Museum für Gegenwart in Berlin, Henie Onstad Kunstsenter in Oslo, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art outside Copenhagen, the Serpentine Gallery in London, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
To date, the foundation has released several volumes of essays based on these seminars and produced a number of programmes and interview series for Axess TV. Together with Bokförlaget Stolpe, the foundation has re-issued Åke Fant’s Hilma af Klint: Occult Painter and Abstract Pioneer and produced a catalogue raisonné of Hilma af Klint’s works in seven volumes. In addition, a virtual reality (VR) version of Hilma af Klint’s Paintings for the Temple has been produced in partnership with Acute Art in London.
