Description: Köln: DuMont, Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen, 2010. 31cm., hardcover, 144pp. prof. illus. English text. Summary: Drawing is an especially exciting chapter in contemporary art. Drawing features in every culture, just as every culture has its vocabulary of symbols, whether they be taken from mythical, political, historical, religious, or other sources. The exhibition Linie Line Linea – Contemporary Drawings conducts a renewed dialogue at each location, with works by Irina Baschlakow, Marc Brandenburg, Monika Brandmeier, Fernando Bryce, Marcel van Eeden, Gerhard Faulhaber, Katharina Hinsberg, Pauline Kraneis, Pia Linz, Christiane Löhr, Theresa Lükenwerk, Nanne Meyer, Thomas Müller, Christian Pilz, Alexander Roob, Malte Spohr, German Stegmaier, Markus Vater, Jorinde Voigt and Ralf Ziervogel. These artists question what drawing is capable of being today, motivating exhibition visitors to examine the differences and correlations between the drawings and symbols of their own culture. The exhibition provides an overview of contemporary drawing in Germany. It highlights the extent to which drawing speaks a multilayered language, even when it concentrates on the drawn line as its basic element. Among the different artistic media, drawing stands out as an independent and unmistakable means of composing exact, authentic images, shaping and changing our perception of ourselves and the world in the process.
