The exhibition sets a course for the elementary forms of drawing. Based on an understanding of the body as an instrument for seismographic recording and as an intelligent storage medium for complex knowledge, »NORTH BY NORTHEAST« explores central issues in drawing: Which stimuli and conditions are relevant for drawing processes? What part do physical action and movement play? What is the role of chance and how is temporality visibly inscribed into the drawing? As the exhibited works meet they allow previous notions of drawing and how drawings are read to be reviewed, encouraging the exploration of unknown forms of graphic notation and provoking an expansion of each artist’s individual repertoire. The exhibition space at the Deutscher Künstlerbund, (Markgrafenstraße 67, in Berlin, Germany) acts as a laboratory to examine and demonstrate the performative and processual potential of drawing. With work by Nikolaus Gansterer, Stella Geppert, Katja Pudor, Christian Schellenberger, Nicole Wendel, Saskia Wendland.
