First-ever translation into English of the legendary book of poetry “BLOD” written by the Danish art historian and publisher R. Broby-Johansen in 1922, for which publication he was sentenced to jail for its sexual immorality: In vivid and gory details, the poems depict the red-light district of Copenhagen’s underbelly. In them, he defends those subjected to misery and poverty, and comments on the hypocrisy of the bourgeoisie responsible for their misery. The appendix of the book gives a unique insight into Broby-Johansen’s methodology, interests and life following the end of his career as a poet, through photographs taken by Johannes Schwartz and translations of the archive by Hørup. Book design by Line-Gry Hørup. Published by Kunstverein Amsterdam. Large softcover. 434 pages, illustrated. New copy.
