A portrait of Carl-Henning Pedersen

Carl-Henning Pedersen looks back at a long and active life as an artist. From his country home in Molesmes in Bourgogne he describes how political commitment, a joy of music and a meeting with love has led him to a fascination of the world of art. He becomes one of the founding members of the Cobra movement formed in 1948 which takes part in the creation of new conditions for the concept of art. We follow his work in the studio and we take a closer look at many of his monomental decorations in mosaic and ceramics, at his paintings on museums and at his biblical interpretations in Ribe Cathedral. Furthermore he comments on the fact that he has managed to gain international recognition as an artist.
