Gestalten – Erling Kagge – A Poor Collectors Guide to Buying Great Art
In 1990, the Norwegian lawyer and writer Erling Kagge was half of the 2-man expedition that was the first ever to reach the North Pole unsupported (the other half was his countryman Børge Ousland). In 1992–93, he became the first person to walk to the South Pole alone, and, in 1994, Kagge summited Mount Everest, thus becoming the first person to complete the “Three Poles Challenge.”
Today, he runs a publishing business in Olso called Kagge Forlag, collects international contemporary art and Russian icons, and serves on the board of the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art. He wrote the preface for our previous release The Outsiders.
