The seminar aimed to advance the understanding of Hilma af Klint’s visionary works, the impact it is having in our time, over a 100 years after their creation, and how af Klint expands our notions of art history.
This seminar was organised by the Ax:son Johnson Foundation together with the Serpentine Galleries as a part of the Foundation’s ongoing effort to further the dissemination of scholarly knowledge.
