Jorn was a spontaneously abstract painter, sculptor and author and co-founder of the international avant-garde movements CoBrA and Situationist International.

The museum houses Denmark's second largest art collection, which, in addition to Jorn's own works, also includes prominent works by other important Danish and international artists of the 20th century - a total of over 30,000 objects by over 600 artists, including Per Kirkeby, Francis Picabia, Lucio Fontana, Pablo Picasso, Jean Arp, Max Ernst, Jean Dubuffet, Pierre Alechinsky, Georg Baselitz, Andreas Slominski and Erwin Wurm.
