Born in 1974, Danish artist Jeppe Hein soared to the top of the international art scene before the age of 35. His works were showcased at the world’s finest exhibitions and sold for sky-high prices. Then suddenly his body said stop. In 2009 Hein went down with stress.
In this book philosopher Finn Janning follows Jeppe Hein’s development from the time immediately after his diagnosis with burn out and onward – a period where Hein underwent psychoanalysis and developed an interest in yoga, breathing exercises and spirituality. Janning shows how spirituality has become more present in Hein’s works, and in the book develops an existential philosophy in continuation of the artist’s spirituality and art.
