The exhibition “DISEGNO. The art of drawing for the 21st century” gives this idea new life. Its premise is the relevance of drawing as something that drives contemporary art. Prominent movements of modern art that are still waiting to be discovered are presented alongside contemporary works by individual artists that have been created especially for the exhibition. The combination of radical drawing concepts and the resulting works of art give visitors an insight into the current dialogue between drawing and other arts. A new aspect that will be revealed is that this kind of exchange has long been fostered outside Europe in the fields of art, film, photography, literature, philosophy, dance and, last but not least, advertising graphics.
The exhibition showcases the works of the following artists:
Marc Brandenburg, Ines Beyer, Frederike Feldmann, William Forsythe, Hermann Glöckner, Olaf Holzapfel, Jürgen Krause, Korpys/Löffler, Wilhelm Müller, Rei Naito, Frank Nitsche, Brian O'Doherty, Mario Pfeifer, Santiago Sierra, Gert und Uwe Tobias, Rikuo Ueda, Franz-Erhard Walther and many more.
