What Moves Us?

Le Corbusier & Asger Jorn

12 September – 13 December 2015

Museum Jorn marked the 50th anniversary of the Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier’s death with the exhibition What moves us? Le Corbusier & Asger Jorn. The exhibition showed what initially moves Le Corbusier and Asger Jorn in their work, how they moved their audiences, and why they are still capable of moving our thoughts and feelings today.

Le Corbusier (1887-1965) is one of the most influential architects of the 20th century. He wanted nothing less than to change the world, calling for a revolution in architecture or society. Less well-known is Le Corbusier’s artistic production, kept secret for many years, it flourished alongside his avant-garde building and urban designs.

As a young art student, Asger Jorn (1914-1973) collaborated with the famous architect and learned about the capacity of art and architecture to move people. Ever since, the Danish artist was fascinated by architecture as the most public form of art and followed Le Corbusier’s activities.
