Further Biographical Context for Jens Mattiasson
Born in 1916, Jens Mattiasson's creative work was predominantly inspired by the 1930s. Globally this period can be best characterised by the conflict between the world’s leading political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. n Europe, Surrealism continued to be the dominant artistic trend; a kind of expression and school of thought that by this time had spread across the globe. In Mexico, artists such as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera integrated many of these ideas into their radical political ideologies to develop a innovative kind of magic realism.
