NORDIC CONTEMPORARY: ART FROM DENMARK, FINLAND, ICELAND, NORWAY, SWEDEN. Ed. by Hossein Amirsadeghi. Thames and Hudson Ltd, London, 2014. Published in association with TransGlobe Publishing, London.

Publisher's description: The Nordic countries for many decades defined a free, well organized, sociopolitical system built on seemingly solid financial footing. The recent crash of Iceland's banking system and the worrying rise of the radical right in Sweden have done little to dislodge international appreciation of the Scandinavian way of life and of Nordic culture generally. While times of uncertainty and political upheaval often provide fertile foundations for groundbreaking art, apparently well balanced and comfortable societies can offer the perfect platform for the development of a free creative spirit or force the asking of important questions. Nordic Contemporary presents profiles of nearly 150 of the most important Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian, and Swedish figures and institutions active on the art scene today, including artists, curators, galleries, critics, and collectors.
