Welcome to the Metabunker!
This is my personal weblog to which I regularly post all sorts of content — from informal journal entries to different kinds of criticism and comment. Both text and image, often in synthesis. It also incorporates the work of friends and colleagues on an irregular basis.
The lingua franca of the Metabunker is English, and most of the content you find here will be in that language. I am Danish, however, and some of the content posted here will be specifically for a Danish readership and therefore in Danish. Please accept our apologies in advance if you cannot read it.
I am an art historian with an MA from Columbia University and a Ph. D from the University of Cambridge. Specializing in the Italian Renaissance, my dissertation was on Titian as a print designer and -producer. After a stint as curatorial assistant in the master drawings department of the Morgan Library, New York, I have now taken up a two-year research fellowship at Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen.
Since 2000, I have worked as a comics journalist, critic, and publisher, initially for my own critical journal on comics Rackham, published in Denmark between 2000-2005, and online between 2002-2006, but now placed in hibernation. I have co-edited and co-written a couple of Danish comics anthologies — both called BLÆK, in order to cause as much confusion as possible — and a book on the new wave of auteur comics, Forandringstegn. In 2009 I joined a number of like-minded people to found the Danish Comics Council, a non-profit working to advance knowledge and appreciation of comics in Denmark. I write regularly for The Comics Journal, The Hooded Utilitarian and for the Danish hip hop site, RapSpot.
