Drawing has a central role in contemporary art, since all cultures have a vocabulary of signs, whether they are mythical, political, historical or religious. The exhibition offers an overview of contemporary drawing in Germany. Twenty artists ask what drawing can be today, as a self-confident medium ranging from concept to reportage, from universal system to general culture, from the invention of the world to the depiction of a society threatened by violence.
Visitors to the exhibition are encouraged to examine the differences and similarities with the drawings and signs of their own culture. The exhibition 'Linie Line Linea. Contemporary Drawing' opens up a new dialogue at each location.
