> DESCRIPTION

After the huge success of the "off / marked / sign" in Berlin in spring 2009 is now in the Käthe Kollwitz Museum in Cologne presents 250 works by 63 artists a reduced selection.

The exhibition section of members of Fine Art presents the changing concept of drawing in contemporary visual art to the discussion.The focus is on the autonomous function of drawing in artistic practice. In addition to traditional practices illustrate photographic and digital designs and hybrid combinations of the enormous diversity of contemporary design concept.  Among the exhibited works, there are also selected works of deceased members, like Beuys, Claus, and Thomkins Vedova, against which is compared with the works of their colleagues present the historical significance of the change of drawing visible.

One of the exhibits meet the expectation that drawing was a matter of pen, pencil or pen on paper. But the impetus for drawing has long since spread to the painting, and drawing in space is no longer just a matter of the sculpture, but includes installative and conceptual work equally, while the sculptors themselves come up with decisive formulations drawing autonomous thinking.

Photographic contributions make clear that the initial provision of photography as "Photogenic Drawing" remains current. In addition, the graphic gesture can also be expressed in unconventional materials and everyday found objects. Similarly, the proximity of the drawing to writing is explored in some works.

An exhibition of the Academy of Arts, Berlin, curated in collaboration with the Cologne Kathe Kollwitz Museum, by Robert Kudielka, Michael Schoenholtz and Inge Zimmermann.
