BERLIN.- Akademie der Künste presents aus / gezeichnet / zeichnen is the first exhibition of the members of the Department of Visual Arts since 1993, the year of the unification of the Eastern and Western academies. A total of 450 works by 66 artists will be shown in a space of approximately 2,000 m. The exhibition was curated by Robert Kudielka, Michael Schoenholtz and Inge Zimmermann.

The exhibition provides the basis for a discussion of the altered concept of drawing in contemporary art. The central focus is on the autonomous function of drawing in artistic practice. It has been a long time since drawing was understood as a preparatory activity subordinated to the final work. Since that time, it has been approached primarily as an autonomous means of representation. Thanks to the aesthetic diversity of the members of the department, we have the chance to present an exemplary survey of current conceptions of drawing. Alongside traditional techniques, photographic and digital as well as hybrid concepts demonstrate the enormous range of the contemporary definition of drawing. Selected works by a handful of deceased members, such as Joseph Beuys and Willem de Kooning, allow the historical significance of the transformation in the art of drawing to become apparent.

Participating artists: Gerhard Altenbourg, Dieter Appelt, Armando, Frank Badur, Joseph Beuys, Eberhard Blum, Lothar Böhme, Eduardo Chillida, Emil Cimiotti, Carlfriedrich Claus, Anthony Cragg, Tacita Dean, Jim Dine, Arnold Dreyblatt, Hartwig Ebersbach, Bogomir Ecker, Ulrich Erben, Valie Export, Thomas Florschuetz, Jochen Gerz, Bruno Goller, Dieter Goltzsche, Gotthard Graubner, Erich Hauser, Erwin Heerich, Bernhard Heiliger, Karl Horst Hödicke, Rebecca Horn, Alfonso Hüppi, Magdalena Jetelová, Joachim John, Ivan Kafka, Gerhard Kettner, Ronald B.
