Abstract [en]

The avant-garde of the early twentieth century in Europe was to a large extent a field of migrating artists and the circulation of artists' works. Swedish and other Scandinavian artists were a large part of avant-garde formations in Paris. Avant-garde formations need to be understood as being positioned in a field of several parallel spaces. Matisse eleverna ("the students of Matisse") has become ahistorical, gendered in the masculine unit that with time and much historical writing, has taken on a narrower meaning different from the actual group of Matisse's Swedish students. This chapter investigates this construction through two recent figures of pioneering avant-gardism within the modernist narrative: the ones created around the work of Siri Derkert and Hilma af Klint. It concludes by revisiting the Baltic Exhibition in Malmo 1914, an historic moment where several initiatives of avant-garde ambition were performed on one site.
