No Plan at All | Book Launch and Talk

Book launch & conversation between Niels Borch Jensen and Maria Kjær Themsen, at 5pm on 30 November.

BORCH Editions invites you to join us at the studio to celebrate the launch of the book No Plan at All: How the Danish Printshop of Niels Borch Jensen Redefined Artists’ Prints for the Contemporary World, published by Hatje Cantz 

The book will be the focal point of a conversation between author and art critic Maria Kjær Themsen and Niels Borch Jensen, founder of BORCH Editions.

No Plan at All offers insight into how artists think, how artworks are made, and why they matter to audiences. Niels Borch Jensen’s personal recollections are put into context by art historian and co-author Susan Tallman. Interviews with artists further illuminate the often-opaque processes, decisions and play that lie behind major works of art.

Maria Kjær Themsen is an art critic and editor at Dagbladet Information. She has previously written for Weekendavisen and the online magazine Kunstkritikk. Recently, she has authored Berørt: Om Dansk Kunst i det nye årtusinde about Danish contemporary art.

The book is kindly supported by The Beckett Foundation, the Bergia Foundation, Bestles Foundation & New Carlsberg Foundation
