WOLFSBURG.- “What’s up, people?” This comment, written by a teenager in the guestbook of the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, was used by Christian Jankowski for his neon text that shines as the leitmotif above the exhibition: “Walk the Line!”

The show explores the articulation possibilities between image and writing, between line, area and space and finds new paths in drawing in often installative works. Featuring 105 works, the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg’s survey exhibition presents text-image combinations (Marcel Dzama, Nedko Solakov, Raymond Pettibon), animation sequences (William Kentridge, Katie Armstrong), cut-outs and gravures (Mario BieRende, Pia Linz, Awst & Walter), adaptations of musical structures (Jorinde Voigt, Angela Bulloch, Gregor Hildebrandt) in addition to space-filling light installations (Mariana Vassileva, Carsten Nicolai). Ten of the 37 participating artists produced new pieces especially for this exhibition.

Drawing is often referred to as “thinking with the pen.” Drawing has been outgrowing its traditional materials and techniques since the mid-1960s at the latest. Conceptual approaches as well as non-material procedures have opened the doors of ‘drawing’ even wider. The use of modern technologies has moreover enabled drawing to not only conquer new surfaces but also spaces, and even penetrate the dimension of time. Over the past ten years, in particular, numerous young artists from across the world have rediscovered drawing. The show focuses on such thematic areas as narration, abstraction in the open line, the moving line (animation, film), architecture, space, music, fantastic worlds and their interleaving or juxtaposition with reality as well as drawing concepts in scientific and epistemological contexts.

The participating artists are Katie Armstrong, Il-Jin Atem Choi, Awst & Walther, Mario BieRende, Karoline Bröckel, Angela Bulloch, Marcel Dzama, Fred Eerdekens, Friederike Feldmann, Christine Gensheimer, Gregor Hildebrandt, Katharina Hinsberg, Christian Jankowski, Zilvinas Kempinas, William Kentridge, Byungjoo Lee, Pia Linz, Alison Moffett, Keita Mori, Lada Nakonechna, Carsten Nicolai, Pavel Pepperstein, Raymond Pettibon, Christian Pilz, Jen Ray, Alexander Roob, Yehudit Sasportas, Simon Schubert, Nedko Solakov, Troika, Mariana Vassileva, Jorinde Voigt, Tim Wolff und Ralf Ziervogel.

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue featuring numerous installation views and an introduction to the exhibition by Holger Broeker as well as texts on the exhibited works (96 pages, ca. 50 color illustrations, publication date: late May 2015)
