No Place, nowhere: 5 Years for Conceptual Art

Drawing Rooms

Trends in Contemporary Graphic Art

The medium of drawing has never been so topical. Young artists in particular are once again dedicating themselves exclusively to drawing and consciously setting new accents. The spectrum ranges from the precise, small-format pencil study to diagrams, reportages, and scores, to large, temporary room installations. These new trends in drawing are the focus of the volume “Drawing Rooms”.

The exhibition catalogue on the occasion of the reopening of the Hamburger Kunsthalle provides an in-depth overview of over fifty years of drawing, and hence insight into a medium is today among the “most open and direct genres of the present.”
